Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots

 

Old Mill Nurseries is a proud supporter of Toys for Tots.

 

When you visit Santa & Rudolph this weekend, please bring an unwrapped toy for a child in need if you can.

 

Toys for Tots Program

The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is directed by the Commander, Marine Forces Reserve, with the assistance of his staff, from the Marine Forces Reserve Headquarters in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Last year, The Marine Toys for Tots Program collected and distributed 18 million toys to 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities covering all 50 States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

 

Toys for Tots – How it Works

Local toy collection campaigns begin in October and last until mid to late December. Actual Toy distribution  distribution takes place mid to late December.

In over 700 communities covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, local business leaders display the drop-off/collection boxes in their stores and provide free warehouse space and vehicles to help to collect the toys. None of this could happen without your generous donations.

Once all the toys have been collected, local agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies, distribute the toys to the less fortunate children of the community.

While Toys for Tots Coordinators organize, coordinate and manage the campaign, the ultimate success depends on the support of the local community and the generosity of the people who donate toys.

Santa will be at Old Mill Nurseries on Saturday & Sunday, December 9th & 10th from 12pm-3pm.  When you visit, please bring an unwrapped toy for a child in need.
