About toddler toys
Toys for Tots, a 74-year-old national charity program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to children less fortunate during every Christmas vacation period. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by our Marines and volunteers during the Christmas season provide these children with recognition, trust and a positive memory for a lifetime. Toys for Tots also offers year-round support to less fortunate families facing exceptional challenges and circumstances, sending a message of hope beyond the holiday season. It is these experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their communities. Last year, the Marine Toys for Tots program fulfilled the vacation hopes and dreams of 7.4 million less fortunate children in more than 800 communities across the country. Since 1947, more than 272 million children have been helped. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a non-profit organization authorized by the United States Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide funds and other support as needed for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.
