Toys for Tots is a Nationwide charitable organization whose mission is to collect and donate new, unwrapped toys to give as Christmas gifts to children in need. The group believes that every child should be able to open a present on Christmas and their work makes it possible for every child to open a gift during the holidays. It sends a message of hope to the less fortunate youngsters, which will assist them in becoming productive, patriotic citizens.
Each year, Toys for Tots collects and distributes toys donated and collected in communities where a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. If there is not a Marine Corps Unit in your area, groups of men and women, mainly veterans, can be authorized by the Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local campaign.
In addition to the toy drive, the Toys for Tots Coordinators conduct many different activities to support their cause such as golf tournaments, foot races, and other community events to increase the involvement in Toys for Tots and raise awareness and money for the campaign.
