Overview (Program Summary)
Bring Holiday Joy to Less-Fortunate Children! Please join ACC NCR’s Community Service Forum in supporting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program which is collecting unwrapped toys in November and December to give as gifts to less fortunate children in the community. Donate a toy virtually or drop a toy at Virginia drop box or Maryland drop box near you. You can also make a donation to the campaign. Deadline for toy donations is December 12. Since we can’t formally track donations from ACC NCR, please take a picture of you dropping off your toy or simply let us know if you participated by sending an email to email@example.com.
