toys for tots

It's only a couple days before Christmas. I assume that everyone has most of their shopping done and presents are under the tree. But there are a few more gifts you can buy this year that will bring a smile to a child in need.

Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity is the fundraising, funding and support organization for the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Toys for Tots delivers shiny new toys to needy youngsters at Christmas with a message of hope that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.

There are drop-off locations at Toys 'R Us stores around the country, and thousands of other locations.  Check out the website to find a drop-off location near you.  If you aren't able to donate toys this year, you can always donate money to the Toys for Tots campaign directly to help them continue the work they've been doing since 1991.  Over 96% of donations goes directly toward providing books, toys, and gifts to kids in need.
