Toys for Tots primary goal is, through the gift of a new toy, to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children. The Marine Toys for Tots Program has been delivering a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters since 1947, distributing 604 million toys to date and supporting 272 million children.
According to the organization's website, "The objectives of the Foundation 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 toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to improving communities in the future. "
There are nearly 15 million American children living at or below the poverty level. Toys for Tots aims to help these children during the holidays. Local campaigns are conducted annually in over 800 communities covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
Thank you, our community, for your important recommendation to donate to Toys for Tots this holiday season.

This year has been very hard for myself and my girls. I lost my job due to my disability becoming worse then our house flooded in May and we lost everything. With all of our personal items gone and our house still under construction 7 months later with no income I had no clue how I was going to celebrate the holidays with my kids. . I have such a sigh of relief that this was not going to be the year I had to tell my 4 and 8 year old that Santa isn't real. My girls know the real meaning of Christmas is family but the relief is still very real that I get to see excitement on their faces when they come down Christmas morning and have something waiting for them from Santa. Thank you Toys for Tots and every person that has ever helped make this possible. When I can I will give back so other families can continue to have the same experience mine will have this Christmas.
It is always good to be a blessing to others.
