The Toys for Tots Program is managed by The United States Marine Corps and local volunteers. The mission of the Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys to distribute as Christmas gifts to the less fortunate children in the Lorain County community. Items needed for donation include new, unwrapped toys for girls, boys, and babies ages 0-14 years of age.  The goal to deliver a new toy at Christmas sends a message of hope to the less fortunate children in hopes to inspire them in becoming responsible and active citizens in the community. Donations can be dropped off at the Veterans Service Center where the Toys For Tots boxes are available. Donations will be accepted until Dec. 11. For more information refer to TFTLORAIN@gmail.com.
