Globe University-Appleton is in its second year as a drop off site for the US Marine Corps ‘Toys for Tots’ campaign to benefit needy children in the Appleton area.
The mission of the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, toys from October-December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
