For more than 60 years, Toys For Tots has been giving back to children in need. Toys For Tots collects new, unwrapped toys for children during the months of October, November and December each year and distributes the present to children in need during the holidays. Through the compassion and generous donations of community members, Toys For Tots has distributed more than 469 million toys and continues to make a difference in communities nationwide.
At Engineered Air, we are proud to announce that we are now officially a U.S. Marine Corp Reserve drop-off location for Toys For Tots! By working with the Toys For Tots charity organization, Engineered Air hopes to be able to make an ongoing difference throughout the communities we service.
The Toys for Tots Program
Since 1947, Toys for Tots has been distributing toys to children whose parents cannot afford to purchase them gifts for the holidays. The program, which is run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, serves to send a message of hope to less fortunate children. The nonprofit organization has grown tremendously since its origin and now even has a donation box at the White House! While the organization has continued to grow, their mission remains the same. Ultimately, through the combined efforts of people like you, Toys For Tots inspires children to become responsible, productive and patriotic citizens.
