The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is the Marine Corps’s premier community action program and one of the nation’s flagship Christmas charitable causes. Over the years, it has become a traditional part of the annual Christmas holiday season within communities nationwide. The message of hope delivered through a shiny new toy at Christmas has a positive impact on children, their families and their communities. It’s not the toy – it’s what the toy does.
