As in years past, we will be collecting new toys of all kinds for children up to age 14 to donate to the Marine Foundation Toys for Tots. The Toys for Tots Program has been delivering a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters since 1947. They have distributed an amazing 548 million toys to 251 million children to date! Over 97% of donations go directly to their mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. The remaining 3% of support is spent on fundraising expenses — not one donated dollar goes to salaries or any other manpower costs.
New toys for all ages are welcome – and there is no need to wrap them. Once collected, they all go to a warehouse where they are divided by age and other categories before being distributed. Please do not include any food, toy/fake weapons, or gift cards. Good ideas for teens/tweens gifts include sporting equipment, books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.
