Huntsville, AL (WAAY/CNN) - An adult store in Alabama says it's trying to spread some holiday cheer, but the "Toys for Tots" program isn't happy.

Pleasures was collecting donations for the U.S. Marines' kids' charity, and offering a free adult toy for the donors.

"Toys for Tots" said it didn't want its name associated with the store, and demanded that Pleasures remove the charity's logo from ads and signs.

The store manager's not sure what the fuss is about.

"Pleasures has been donating to charities for the 19 years that it's been established, and we feel like our donations should not be any different than anybody else's donations, because the kids don't care where the toys come from, as long as they get toys," said store manager Terra Jeffrey.

Pleasures took town the signs and removed the "Toys for Tots" logo from its ads, but the store still prominently displays the "Toys for Tots" logo on its web site, and it will continue the toy drive through December 15.
