At Appalachian Outfitters, we believe we should always be helping others whenever we can, and we should help others even more during the holiday season. Toys for Tots is a simple way to give to those around us so that they can enjoy the joyous season, too.
Help Achieve The Goal!
The Toys for Tots Program was started by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. They seek “to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”
Toys for Tots is an official nonprofit organization that has been routinely recognized as a top fundraising and support organization. It has been ranked among the “Philanthropy 400” for several years and also distinguished in numerous publications.
The Marines organizing the Toys for Tots Program hope to inspire the less fortunate children in the U.S. with hope for their futures. Children are the future of our nation, and as such they are our most important attribute; there is no reason these youths should grow up to be any less responsible, productive, or patriotic than any other children. Your contribution can help!
Connect With The Community!
Donating toys to the program does more than bring a smile to a child’s face – it unites local community members to serve a purpose larger than themselves. For three months each year, the collection and distribution of the toys brings better unity to the present and the future.
There are multiple locations across the nation where participants can donate unused toys. Because the program is specified towards local communities, you can be guaranteed that you’re serving your local community by donating items. Children should experience the joy of opening gifts no matter their parents’ incomes.
