Founded in 1947 and run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve,Toys for Tots has been serving American communities for over 60 years; collecting unopened toys each year throughout the months of October, November and December, then distributing them to less fortunate children at Christmas. According to the program's website:
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
