Boxes of gifts at the Toys for Tots 12-hour challenge

"New York's horsemen have always been supporters of the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots Foundation, and we are proud to do our part once again as we celebrate the 70th anniversary of this great initiative".

"When you have those kinds of things happen in Houston or Florida or Puerto Rico, not only do you have a number of people who all of a sudden find themselves in a situation where they need assistance, but your donor base is effected as well", said retired Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Pete Osman, CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

Covelli Enterprises, Panera's largest franchisee, has donated to Toys for Tots for the past 35 days. "And send a message of hope to that youngster who probably otherwise would go without". "I am proud to have supported Toys for Tots for more than a decade and to support it again this year".

Donation boxes to be located at Clubhouse entrance and Turf and Field entrance.

They will accept new, unwrapped toys and cash donations.

Toys for Tots is a nationwide program affiliated with the Marine Corps and its veterans, and the Ridgefield Detachment of the Marine Corps League (MCL) has been conducting an annual Toys for Tots campaign since 1972.

Jean Kelly of Westfield incorporates Toys for Tots in her holiday shopping budget. There are two ways to give this holiday season. "We want to be able to make a child's Christmas just a little bit brighter".

Surrounded by over 100 colleagues, Federal Coordinating Officer Willie Nunn presented members of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve with bins of donated new toys, including over 10 new bikes and helmets.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the program, whose mission - according to its website - is to collect toys between October and December and distribute them as gifts children in need during the holidays.
