Even though the prime-time holiday season has come and gone, the needs of disadvantaged children have not. Giving and caring for others should be a focus throughout the entire year. One client of ours is truly exemplary in providing service and works hard at it all year long.
Meet the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. For those who are less fortunate during the holiday season, Toys for Tots steps in to lend a helping hand by providing toys for children all around the United States. Toys for Tots was founded in 1947 by Major William L. Hendricks of the United States Marine Corps and to this day still accomplishes every year the gift of giving by bringing a toy together with a child during the holidays.
This last year was particularly successful:
“The results of the 62nd annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Campaign, conducted during October, November and December 2009, have been tabulated. The results are: U.S. Marines distributed 16.4 million new toys to 7.4 million less fortunate children throughout the nation. This was one of the most successful campaigns in the 62 year history of Toys for Tots – and this in spite of the economy.”
Below are some videos that always bring a smile to our faces when we see the United States Marine Corps helping others. We support or troops for their involvement in our communities around the country.
