'TOYS FOR TOTS' PROGRAM SEEKING SPONSORSHIPS, DONATIONS AND COLLECTION SITES

U.S Marine Toys for TOTS Program

Post Date:December 04, 2017 10:34 a.m.

The U.S. Marines Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program for St. Charles Parish is currently seeking sponsorships, donations and businesses to serve as toy collection sites for the holiday season.

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 in which the campaign is conducted.

Requests for toys have been received from several St. Charles Parish Non-Profit Agencies who will be hosting toy distributions throughout the Parish in the upcoming weeks. Our inventory is very low, therefore, we are soliciting the support of the Community to assist us by either placing a toy collection box in your place of business, consider becoming a sponsor or by donating to the Toys for Tots Foundation.

Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity is the fund raising, funding and support organization for the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation has supported Toys for Tots since 1991.

For more information about becoming a toy collection site, becoming a sponsor or to give a donation please contact Makeisha D. Barnes, Coordinator for St. Charles Parish at (504) 570-7380 or email Makeisha.barnes@ibarnes.org. On-line donations can be made at toysfortots.org. La, Waggaman must be selected in the Local Campaign drop down list for online donations.
