TOYS FOR TOTS 2023 YEAR END REPORT

Toys For Tots, a 501(c)3 charity, is excited to announce their 2023 Year End Report. For 76 years, the United States Marine Corps Toys For Tots has been the Official “Santa’s Helper” in gathering toys and bringing joy to millions of children around the nation. Former Marine Corps Sgt. Jason Brown led the 2023 campaign.

The United States Marine Corps Toys For Tots program was able to:

• Provide hope and a Christmas to 1,818 children

• $20,359.11 received in donations

• $21,888.49 spent on toys

• 5,583 toys handed out

 

The toys left over will go into storage and be distributed next year. All donations stay within our area of operations; they don’t go outside of our area.

Although we are done with Christmas, Toys For Tots isn’t just about Christmas. We would like to work on our literacy program. By providing books to children, our hope is to encourage them to stay in school and lead healthy productive lives. Our next goal is to start a back to school program, where we hand out backpacks to children that contain books and school supplies. We plan to provide books and school supplies to at least two schools in every county each year pending available funds..

Toys For Tots accepts donations year round. Donations can be made online or by mail. We would like to thank everyone that donated their time and money to help put a smile on children’s faces.
