Where To Donate To Toys For Tots This Christmas
It's the season for giving and this year's Toys For Tots locations have been released. Find out where you can drop off toys and upcoming events for Toys For Tots.
Toys For Tots began in 1947 by Marine Major Bill Hendricks after his wife asked him to donate a Raggedy Ann Doll she made to a charity that would give it to a child in need. When Major Hendrick's realized one didn't exist, his wife told him he should create one. Major Hendricks and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles then collected 5,000 toys and gave them away to families in need. Major Hendricks idea was adopted by the Marines and is now done nationwide.
