Toys for Tots Donations

The local U.S. Marine Corps Reserve needs your help spreading a little Christmas joy.
Last year, Toys for Tots in Harrison, Hancock and Stone Counties collected approximately 10, 474 toys, all of which were donated to Gulf Coast children in need. The unit is asking for the public’s help in order to donate even more toys this year. Anyone can make a monetary donation by visiting the Toys for Tots website at Gulfport-ms.toysfortots.org. The website also has a list of where Toys for Tots donation boxes are located along the Coast. The deadline for all donations is December 11th.
Toys for Tots Coordinator Gabriela Pinon said, “I think it’s very important that we keep the program going and make it a success every year. Just last year alone, we were able to help over 2,700 kids here in the Gulf Coast. It’s important to get the message out to know that the Marine Corps here to help and get the toys for the children. It’s about them.”
