The Holidays are a time of joy,  happiness and goodwill.  It is a time of giving and helping those that are less fortunate than ourselves, especially children.  Please find it in your hearts to donate a toy this year for the children. 

Toys will be collected during the November 29th and December 6th, meetings and delivered to the Marine Corp. Reserves warehouse  on December 7.  All toy donations need to be new and unwrapped with a dollar value over $10 dollars.  For those of you unable to purchase a toy,  I will also be accepting cash donations.   On behalf of the U.S. Marine Corp. 1st Sgt. Meisinger, I thank all of you for participating in such a wonderful program for the children.

Happy Holidays!!!!!!    Christine Jost 

For additional information on the Toys for Tots Program please go to web-site.
