Through December 9, visitors can bring in new, unwrapped toys for donation to the Toys for Tots program, organized by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve since 1947. Donation boxes are located inside the main entrance of the Museum, near the admissions desks, and drop-offs can be made during regular Museum hours.
Toys are also available for purchase in the Museum Store.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
Over the 61 years of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, Marines have distributed more than 332.5 million toys to 158.7 million needy children.
