Kicked off campaign

The Marine Corps Toys for Tots 2021 Campaign for 2021 kicked off in October. Applications for children ages infant through age 12 will be accepted through Nov. 24. Call 618-282-7783 for information on how to apply. The Mission of the Marine Corps Toys for Tots is to bring the joy of Christmas to less fortunate children due to job loss, unforeseen circumstances and low income families. The goal is to deliver a message of hope to inspire youngsters to grow into responsible, productive and patriotic citizens. The objective includes having a positive impact on the development of children, creating or restoring self-esteem, and bringing all elements of communities together for a common cause. “Every Child Deserves A Little Christmas.” Pictured are Randolph County Toys for Tots Assistant Coordinator John Preston and Coordinator Pam Piel.
