Bring a new unwrapped gift to donate to Toys for Tots

As we have for the many years, we will be collecting new unwrapped gifts to donate to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Campaign. We encourage all families to contribute towards this great cause. For every gift you donate, you will receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win a prize (to be announced prior to the competition). We will have one prize raffled at the end of each competition night. Each day begins a new raffle. If you donate a gift Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, you will be entered in each raffle. If you donate a gift on Friday,you will only be entered into Friday's raffle. You may also purchase a raffle ticket each day. All proceeds are donated to the Toys for Tots Campaign.

We will have U.S. Marines volunteering their time to collect gifts during our competition weekend.

Here are some FAQs & answers from the Toys for Tots website:

Q: What ages are supported by Toys for Tots?

Most campaign sites are able to assist children up to age 12, but in many local communities, local support is such that the age limit may be extended to 14-16.

Q: Is there a list of toys available to guide me with my donation?

Toys for Tots does not publish a list of appropriate toys to donate. If such a list were created, most would follow it, resulting in a limited selection of items to distribute in each community. We would rather our donors consider what might be an appropriate gift for their own child/relative, purchase the item, and donate to Toys for Tots.

Q: Pre-teen/teens are groups for which shopping is especially difficult. Do you have any ideas?

The Foundation does purchase supplemental toys/gifts for our campaign sites and focuses on these age groups. In the past, items purchased for these groups have included, but are not limited to: sporting equipment/bags/balls; books, backpacks, cosmetics, purses, watch/wallet gift sets, bath gift sets, board games, radio control cars/trucks, hand-held electronics, skateboards/helmets, curling irons, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.

Q: Are there toys/gifts that are not accepted/distributed?

Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.
