Welcome to Sarasota Toys for Tots
As the holiday season draw near for 2012, you can be certain your local Marines are gearing up for their annual Toys for Tots campaign. Since 1947, Marines have been making Christmas wishes come true for needy children. Toys for Tots in Sarasota makes a difference in the lives of the less fortunate children in our community. Last year, approximately 14,560 children received toys through Toys for Tots. This year, we expect that the need will be even more with the downturn in the economy. The Marines work very hard to make certain that Toys for Tots is a success but they could never do it without the help of concerned citizens and business leaders like you. We rely on you, our local community and many volunteers who make Toys for Tots possible year after year. A toy for Tots embodies the true Spirit of Christmas. The gift of a shiny new toy to a needy child - something that most children take for granted - means that someone cares and that child is not forgotten. Your local Marines believe that ’Every Child deserves a little Christmas” and we are asking for your help. Send a message of hope through the gift of a new toy. You may drop off a new unwrapped toy at various business locations throughout Sarasota at the Toys for Tots Drop Boxes. Toys will be accepted through December 23rd.
