Toys for Tots campaign gets help

The U.S. Mar­ine Corps Re­serves, Phil­adelphia Fire De­part­ment and South­east­ern Pennsylvania chapter of the Amer­ic­an Red Cross have joined forces this hol­i­day sea­son to de­liv­er smiles and good cheer to chil­dren and fam­il­ies.

All Phil­adelphia fire­houses have been des­ig­nated as Toys for Tots drop-off loc­a­tions. The fire­houses are pre­pared to re­ceive donated, un­wrapped toys from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Checks or cash dona­tions can­not be ac­cep­ted at those loc­a­tions.

Dur­ing 62 years of the Toys for Tots pro­gram, Mar­ines have dis­trib­uted more than 400 mil­lion toys to 188 mil­lion needy chil­dren. The Phil­adelphia Fire De­part­ment and the Amer­ic­an Red Cross re­cog­nize the value of the pro­gram and have pledged their sup­port. for it. ••
