Monday, Nov. 1 - Saturday, Dec. 11
The McLean Community Center will be accepting toy donations for Toys for Tots from Monday, Nov. 1 through Saturday, Dec. 11.
Toys can be dropped off at the dropbox in the MCC lobby, or at the Santa Claus is Coming to Town event on Saturday, Dec. 11.
Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 244 million children have been assisted.
