The New York City Toys for Tots Marines collect toys from various companies, organizations, families, and individuals to provide the needy and underprivileged children of New York City a Happy Holiday.
Every year hundreds of companies and organizations volunteer their establishments as a drop off location for employees, customers, and individuals to drop off toys. Some companies offer storage space, vehicles, boxes, and other various services that help in the logistics of collecting and transporting toys to the needy children.
Families and individuals offer their time as volunteers to help deliver and pick up boxes from various locations within the New York City area. Without the help of the local community, the Toys for Tots program would not be able to provide an increasing amount of toys every year.
In 2003, the Toys for Tots Campaign in New York City collected over 120,000 toys to distribute to over 38,000 children.
In 2004, the Toys for Tots Campaign in New York City collected over 295,000 toys to distribute to over 90,000 children.
In 2005, the Toys for Tots Campaign in New York City collected over 300,000
toys to distribute to over 90,000 children.
Every year we try to exceed the total from the year before. Every year the people of New York City show how much they care about the local community and help with providing the needy children a toy for the holidays. The Toys for Tots staff thanks you for helping this great cause of providing a better Holiday to children of New York City.
