The Toys for Tots program originated in the 1940s as a program implemented by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. The program’s mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys leading up to and during the holiday season. The toys will be distributed as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
