The staff of Schmidt Kramer once again participated in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots by donating new toys to help children experience the joy of Christmas. 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.” Each year over 100,000 toys are collected and distributed to children during the holiday season.
According to the Toys for Tots Foundation, the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program has gifted over 469 million toys to over 216 million children since the program began. The program aims to support less fortunate children by helping them experience the joy of Christmas. The Toys for Tots Foundation depends on the support of local communities for the annual gifts collection and distribution drives. For more information on how you can support this wonderful cause, see the Toys for Tots website.
