About the United States Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program
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.
The objectives of the program are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources, our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
