Committed to investing in the next generation
Supporting needed programming, services, equipment, infrastructure, and more in order to foster, develop, and improve the lives of children.
Toys for Tots
Through the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, collect new, unwrapped toys to distribute to underprivileged children in our communities during the holiday season.
Toys for Tots distributes toys and books to millions of less fortunate children each year. We wouldn’t be able to reach so many children were it not for the help received from our corporate partners like Fareway. Their community service goals certainly align with those the Marine Corps has promoted for over seven decades through our Toys for Tots Program. With Fareway’s generous support, Toys for Tots will be able to fulfill the holiday dreams of thousands of less fortunate children year-after-year who otherwise might be forgotten.
