The holiday season is the season of giving, and one group that is known most for giving is the U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation. Toys for Tots collects toys from people all around the US and then hands them out to underprivileged families.

“The campaign goes from now till a week before Christmas, and we’re asking the public to go to either their local post office, fire department, police department where there is a box there and give one, brand new, unwrapped toy — or as many as they’d like to give — so they can all be put together and supplied to families that need it,” Butch Yamali said.

To find other Drop-Off locations in the Twin Cities/White Bear Lake area, head over to the local Toys For Tots page. On this page you’ll have the ability to make a donation, find any local events, and discover the nearest drop off locations. Help make this Christmas special to a child in need.

If you have a group of friends, family, or co-workers that would like to contribute to this foundation in other ways, contact and schedule a time to volunteer and sort toys.
