Donations far down - Toys for Tots needs help

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Toys for Tots has been in
operation for 18 years

The US Marine Corps Toys for Tots program is headquartered in Snohomish County, but the program reaches south to include Shoreline.

Last year they supported 27,000 children. This year requests for their assistance have already exceeded 30,000 children.

The program has seen a 35% drop in the number of businesses/agencies that are collecting donations AND a 25% decline in the donations received each year prior to December 1st.

With the tragedies that have been visited upon our family and friends in 2014, the thought of asking for your assistance is difficult. Yet we find ourselves at the place where we will not be able to honor the requests of so many children without increased support.

Their success is contingent, once again, on the generosity of donors.

Please help us – as you have for the last five years – deliver a symbol of hope to every child that has asked.
