MADERA COUNTY MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES – Christmas is a special and joyous time every year, especially for the children. Not so. however, if you receive no presents. That’s where Toys for Tots comes in.
The Marine Corps has been supplying less fortunate children in California with toys for Christmas since 1947.
This Saturday, December 5, is your chance to help the local Marine Corps League provide toys for needy children in Eastern Madera County.
We are having our Annual Toy RoundUp to collect new and unwrapped toys and donations, under the tent in the Oakhurst Von’s Shopping Center parking lot from 8AM to 4PM.
For those who can’t make it to Oakhurst, Marines and volunteers will also be in Coarsegold in the Historic Village, collecting toys from 9AM to 3PM.
We are especially needful this year of toys for the teen years, girls and boys. Memories of this difficult and extremely challenging year for our county and our country will be tempered by the strength with which we stood united and recognized the needs of the least fortunate in our mountain communities.
Oakhurst Toys for Tots provides toys for needy children in EVERY school in our part of the county and many of the churches and agencies. It is only through the generosity of the good people you call neighbors that this is possible.
The Marine Corps League Griswold Mountain Detachment 1121 sponsors Toys for Tots in our area, staffed entirely by unpaid volunteers, where 100% of the toys and donations collected stay in our area.
Our efforts and your generous support assures a successful campaign to bring joy to the hearts of our children.
