Toys for Tots Holiday Campaign Kick-Off
The first day of October marks the official kick-off for a holiday campaign that’s created to help bring holiday joy to the less fortunate. Toys for Tots is a nationwide charitable campaign where U.S. Marines and volunteers partner with businesses to collect new and unwrapped toys and distribute them to the 15 million children living in poverty.
Toys for Tots gifts children with the opportunity to experience the joy of Christmas. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. Last year, the Toys for Tots program helped fulfill the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million children in more than 800 communities nationwide.
There will be a total of 812 local campaigns throughout communities across the U.S. until December 25th. To find a local Toys for Tots Campaign near you, visit www.toysfortots.org.
