Many families are going through tough times, and even more so during the holiday season. The United States Marines have always made it their mission to make sure every good little boy and girl gets a nice new gift for Christmas, and here is how you can register for the program.
Our Texarkana Marines are working hard to gather toys for boys and girls here in Bowie County, Cass County, Camp County, Franklin, Morris, Hopkins, and Titus Counties in Texas. Miller and Hempstead Counties in Arkansas and McCurtain County in Oklahoma. With the help of many fine citizens in our region and of course the many businesses that donate money and toys, and help with “Toys for Tots” in other ways, hundreds of little boys and girls will have a very merry Christmas.
To sign a little boy or girl up to receive a toy, visit the website by clicking here. For those that may not have the ability to register online, applications will be taken in person at Southwest Center on 7th Street November 26th to 29th from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm.

You can also get toy donation sites at the official website, but monetary donations become really important as the delivery deadline gets closer. Marines are able to take the money that is raised and maybe they need more little girl toys or some more toys for a certain aged child, so to donate money to Toys for Tots is always important.
