(NewsUSA) - The 2023 Marine Toys for Tots campaign season is well underway as Marines and volunteers work tirelessly with local businesses, media, and community leaders to provide holiday hope and joy to children in need in their local communities.
As the Christmas holiday approaches, we are asking for support from the American public now more than ever. Families across the Nation continue to face increasing challenges with rising costs and other economic hardships. When families are struggling to make financial ends meet, providing their children with Christmas gifts can feel entirely out of their reach.
That is why we are encouraging our dedicated supporters to give as generously as they can on Giving Tuesday.
“Giving Tuesday — or as we like to call it, Giving TOYSday — is a chance for Toys for Tots supporters to come together and make miracles happen for children in need all across our Nation,” says Lieutenant General Jim Laster, USMC (Retired), President & CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
“These children need and deserve every advantage we can give them, starting with a simple gift to open on Christmas morning,” LtGen Laster continues.
Giving TOYSday also serves as a reminder that generosity is not limited to material possession alone. Your kindness helps instill empathy, compassion, and responsibility in children and future generations, shaping them into more caring and socially conscious individuals.
Toys for Tots has been a beacon of hope for over seven decades, striving to bring smiles to the faces of children who might otherwise go without during the holiday season. By donating on Giving TOYSday, you can help ensure that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to experience the magic and wonder of the holidays. Together, we can provide Christmas miracles and optimism to even more disadvantaged children across our Nation.
