WIREGRASS TOYS FOR TOTS REGISTRATION
The Marine Corps League Wiregrass Detachment along with 16 organizations in Coffee, Geneva, Henry, & Houston Counties are partnering to organize registration for the 7th Annual Toys For Tots program in the Wiregrass. Last year, 1,900 needy children in our communities received Christmas gifts from the Toys For Tots program.
If you are a resident of Coffee, Dale, Geneva, Henry, or Houston County with children between the ages of 0 - 12 years of age and would like to sign them up for this years Toys For Tots program, dial 2-1-1 (toll free) on your phone or 1-888-421-1266 between the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. only, Monday through Friday. A 2-1-1 Call Specialist will review the qualifications with you and let you know when and where to sign up your children. Registration will end November 30, 2011.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during the year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children. The primary goal is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy children and to motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.
If you would like to donate to this year's Toys For Tots program, be a drop off location for donated new toys, or for additional information, call 334-712-6843.
