Toys for Tots

Would you like to put a smile on someone’s face this holiday season? If the answer is yes, then we hope that you’ll consider giving to a local charity.

One such organization that we’d like to highlight is Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots is a not for profit organization that donates toys to needy children across the United States.  The organization traces its origins back to 1947 when Major Bill Hendricks of the US Marine Corps along with a group of Marine reservists began collecting toys in Los Angeles and then distributing the toys to needy children.

Shortly thereafter the US Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots and from there the organization continued to grow. Today Toys for Tots covers all 50 states and it has distributed over 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children.

How to Help

Over the years Toys for Tots has developed numerous partnerships which make it easier for you to donate to those that are less fortunate. This is in addition to them accepting donations by mail and online. To learn more about how to support Toys for Tots please visit them at www.toysfortots.org.
