This Friday morning 11/12/03 we at TNI were able to drop off a truckload of toys to a local radio station, Mix 107.3's
morning show annual Toys For Tots toy drive here in the Washington DC area. Many of the toys we were able to donate this year were given to us by some of the great toy companies we have the pleasure of dealing with all year around, Mattel, Palisades Toys
and Toy Biz
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.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help needy children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of our nation's most valuable natural resource - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; to contribute to better communities in the future.
