Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots program began in 1947 and was conducted by a single Marine Reserve Unit in Los Angeles, CA. Today, all 74 Marine Reserve Units in the US participate in the program that helps collect toys for needy children during the holiday season. The Toys for Tots mission is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters to assist them in becoming responsible, productive and patriotic citizens of the United States of America.
