Thursday, parents stand in one line they don't mind waiting in.
With a list, that looks a lot like Santa's, they get to take home Christmas presents by the bagful at Operation Holiday.
But volunteers with Toys for Tots say the economy may not be the only reason.
Gunnery Sgt. James Watt believes someone else is dipping into donation bins.
"We were actually watching the boxes to see if someone was coming through and emptying the boxes out prior to us getting there," says Sgt. James Watt.
Sgt. Watt says a Wal-Mart employee had to stop one person from emptying a bin without proper ID.
"We did hear rumor that there was a certain day a certain person was coming in but apparently we beat them to the punch," says Sgt. Watt.
Instead of picking up toys up at a scheduled time, toys for tots is now picking up toys randomly throughout the day to ensure they end up here instead of in the wrong hands.
