Toys for Tots – 2016

Every year Troop 101 helps out the Marine Corps League with their Toys for Tots program. This program provides amazing gifts (mostly toys) for children in families in need in our area. If you haven’t done this before I highly recommend it. Anyone that participates should notify the Advancement Chair with the date and number of service hours.

We can help by sorting toys into categories by age and gender, and then preparing bags for families requesting aid. After preparation, there are usually 2 or more days of handing out bags of gifts to families.

The toy sort is scheduled for Saturday, Dec 17. Once the sort is done, bagging will begin and continue until it is done. The work will start at 8:30 am and will continue until around 3pm. You do not need to show up at 8:30am, any time you can show up would be appreciated.   Scouts should wear their Class A Uniform.

The location is the same as last year, a vacant store in the strip mall on the corner of Fones Rd and Pacific (across from Albertsons). It is the store in the inside corner, near Ross (Sizzler was on the corner). Girl Scouts or other friends who would like to help are welcome too.
