Toys for Tots
In The Bag has teamed up with Toys for Tots and in conjunction with Operation Holiday, to have drop off locations for toys at our stores! Operation Holiday distributes the toys to children ages 14 and under. Boxes are in our stores now and new toys are being accepted until December 8th. We are excited to be a part of Toys for Tots and want your participation to make this drive a success! Here is a full list of drop off sites.
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 less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – 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; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
