Toys For Tots has been making a difference in the lives of children and their families since 1947. This organization collects unwrapped toys to gift to children in need during the Christmas season.
The Toys For Tots Foundation Objective states, “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.”
Children can be registered to receive gifts from the organization from September 1st until October 15th by their parents or guardian. This service is available for children ages 0-15.
