Help Make Christmas Special with Toys for Tots

Every year before Christmas time, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves collects and distributes toys to kids in need. The Toys for Tots program donates toys to thousands of kids every year and makes their dreams of a wonderful Christmas come true.

Toys for Tots collects new, unwrapped toys during months in the fall and then distributes them to less fortunate children in December. The primary goal of this great program is to bring hope to less fortunate kids who don’t always get to have a Christmas filled with gifts. The objective of Toys for Tots is to assist young kids into becoming responsible and caring leaders themselves who can then pass on the gift of giving.

Over the years of volunteering and giving back to communities, Toys for Tots has distributed toys to more than 200 million children around the world. In addition to distributing toys, coordinators conduct fundraisers throughout the year such as golf tournaments, bicycle races, and other volunteer events to raise awareness for Toys for Tots. Giving back to your community is important and can easily be done through the Toys for Tots campaign by donating, time, money, or most importantly toys!

      Oscar – kudos to you and your friends for taking an active role in helping to make this great community even greater. There are always great opportunities to give back. Local area churches will surely have great suggestions for areas in need. Animal shelters or maybe even the Houston Zoo could also provide opportunities. Keep up the good work!
