The holiday season is right around the corner, and with all of the crazy deal shopping and gift pandemonium hoopla there is one aspect of it that sometimes may go unnoticed. The Toys for Tots foundation is a charity program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which serves to provide toys to children of less fortunate families for Christmas.
As early as October, donation bins will begin to appear at Toys R US and Babies R US locations to collect new and unwrapped toys from those wishing to donate. There are other ways to donate so those who may be interested should visit the Toys For Tots website to find their local drop off locations.
There has been some discussion taking place on this topic recently. Do you ever make an effort to donate during this time of year? If you donate do you buy some new toys for donation or do you have some leftovers in your collection at home that are unopened and ready to donate? Have any charitable alternatives to Toys for Toys? Join the discussion thread and sound off!
