The Annual Marines Toys for Tots Campaign is in its 75th year in the United States and supported here in the mountain area by the Marine Corps League for over 20 years. The 2022 Campaign is in full swing with over 100 donation boxes accepting new and unwrapped toys in participating businesses, schools and organizations. The white boxes with red lettering spell happiness for those less fortunate children in Eastern Madera County who otherwise may not have had such a Merry Christmas. All donations, toys and monies, collected in our campaign stay in Eastern Madera County. Important things, places and times to remember….If you are a needy parent or child’s caregiver, the primary place to enroll your child to receive toys is your local school. Names are taken at the schools, even if your child is home schooled or not in school yet, and the toys are delivered there for the parents to pick up. Names must be submitted by December 10 to allow time to sort, package and deliver the toys for Christmas…..Special events are held on November 19 at Ace Hardware in Oakhurst and December 3 in the Von’s parking lot under a big white tent. From 8am to 4pm on each date, Marines and volunteers are present to accept your donations and thank you for helping our children in need. Each location is special….on November 19, Ace Hardware donates an additional toy for every toy donated thereby DOUBLING YOUR DONATION !! We are pleased that some wait all year to bring their donations to Ace Hardware. On December 3, there is a great outpouring of community support where static displays including fire trucks, ambulance, law enforcement and other vehicles allow children to interact and experience our giving community. Donate to the Marines and help us fill our boxes to spread the Christmas spirit to all our citizens and especially to those children in our area who are most in need. Dennis Osantowski, the Eastern Madera County Coordinator, can answer your questions and concerns at 970-209-2099.
