The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
However this year due to the strained economy, Toys for Tots find their donations are down and there’s a major push to get enough toys for needy children this holiday season.
The cut off date for donations is Dec 19, 2008 in order to fill the requests by Christmas Eve.
