Toys for Tots - unwrapped children toys from small children to 12 year olds Christmas 2011
Since 1947, Marines have been making Christmas wishes come true for needy children.
Toys for Tots makes a difference in the lives of the less fortunate children of our community. Over the years, Marines have distributed over 416,000,000 toys and brought the joy of Christmas and a message of hope to more than 195,000,000 children. This year we expect the need to be greater than last, and we are asking you to help.
The local Toys for Tots team works very hard to make Toys for Tots a success, but we could never do it without the help of concerned citizens and business leaders. We rely on local donations of toys for distribution on Dec. 17, 2011. Whatever you can provide will help immensely.
For the many volunteers who make Toys for Tots possible year after year, Toys for Tots embodies the true spirit of Christmas. The gift of a shiny new toy - something that most children take for granted - means to a needy child that someone cares, that they hasn't been forgotten, that Christmas hasn't passed them by.
The Marine Corps Reserve believes that "Every Child deserves a Little Christmas," and we are asking you to help us send the needy children of our community a message of hope this Christmas. We hope you can help us with a donation this year.
