Big Cheer For Your Community's Smallest
Even the smallest toy can mean the biggest smile for kids, especially during the holidays
Thanks to Toys for Tots
, which was founded in 1947 by US Marine Corps reservist Major Bill Hendricks, children whose parents cannot afford gifts are able to bask in the spirit of the season.
Headquartered in New Orleans, Toys for Tots coordinators collect and distribute donated toys to less fortunate kids across the country. Plus, exposure to positive role models, like Marines, helps boost kids' self-esteem and leaves a lasting impact on their lives.
There's still time to make a child's dream come true this season: Drop off new, unwrapped toys at your nearest collection box
, or make a monetary donation
year round (97% goes directly to providing children's gifts).
