Toys For Tots
Did you know, Toys for Tots started many years ago? Way back in 1947, when Diane Hendricks, wife of Major Bill Hendricks of the US Marine Corp Reserves wanted to gift handmade dolls to less than fortunate girls. This program started locally in Los Angeles, and was such a hit in the first year, they were able to elevate the program to national level the following year.
Small Businesses Help Collect Toys
Over the years, the Marine Corp has utilized regional coordinators to partner with local small businesses and assist with signage, literature and of course a collection box. It is easy for a small business to get involved, and there are many ways for individuals to reach out and help as well. So, while supporting your local small business, please consider also supporting those less fortunate. For more info check out the Toys For Tots Website here: https://www.toysfortots.org/
This is the time of year to pay it forward and give help to those in need. Toys for Tots has supported 265 Million children to date. Please drop off new, unwrapped toys in our drop box here at Wilton Auto and Tire Center 658 Danbury Road, Wilton CT 06897
