We are just a few weeks away from Christmas and as you do your Christmas shopping we'd like to ask that you consider picking up a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the Toys for Tots holiday toy drive. Toys for Tots delivers these toys to less fortunate children who may not get a Christmas gift otherwise. We've got drop off locations set up in most of our City buildings and we'd love to see our community fill them up!
Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 244 million children have been assisted.
