Asking you for your support, for a cause that I think you may care about - Toys for Tots.
During the Christmas holiday season Toys for Tots provides joy and a message of hope to economically disadvantaged children through the gift of a new unwrapped toy; a toy they might not otherwise receive. Our gifts offer these children recognition and a positive memory they will cherish for a lifetime. Many of the gifts we provide, such as books, games and sports equipment, make a significant contribution to the educational, social and physical development of these children.
The Marine Corps League – Mule Town Detachment # 1286 will be sponsoring the 2012 Toys for Tots again this year in Maury County.
In 2011, The Marine Corps League – Mule Town Detachment # 1286 provided Christmas toys, books, games and sports equipment for 503 economically disadvantaged children in Maury County. We also was able to provided help to the Maury County Family Center (100 + children) and the Angel Tree program (224 children). In 2011 we raised $4,600 and purchased $4,600 in toys from Maury County businesses. In other-words, what we collect in Maury County, stays in Maury County.
NOTE: All monetary donations and toys received remain within our Maury County community.
Would you like to help us out this year? "Every Child deserves a Little Christmas."
Our local toy collection campaign began in October and will last until mid December and our toy distribution will take place mid December.
If your company, business, church or school would like to collect new and unwrapped toys or make a donation to help our Maury county economically disadvantaged children, please contact us at 931-478-1000. Applications for families in need can be downloaded. (See above on right side of page.)

This assistance includes supporting the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program by raising funds to provide toys to supplement the collections of local Toys for Tots campaigns, to provide promotional and support material and defray the costs of conducting annual Toys for Tots campaigns. Other Foundation support includes providing administrative, advisory, financial, logistic and promotional support to local Toys for Tots Coordinators; managing funds raised and monies donated based on the use of Toys for Tots name or logo; providing other support the Marine Corps, as a federal agency, cannot provide; and conducting public education and information programs about Toys for Tots that call the general public to action in support of this patriotic community action program.
