The holidays are such a special time of year. When the Christmas tunes start playing and the tree goes up, it’s hard not to get into the holiday spirit. Every year, there are families and children who don’t have the luxury of wrapping up gifts under their tree. We feel so strongly about giving back to our community and its members who deserve to enjoy the magic this season brings. To help make this happen, our office is again participating in Toys for Tots. Our donation box is set up and ready to accept donations through December 16th. If you would like to donate, toys should be suitable for kids ages 0-14 and should be unopened. We hope these toys will bring joy to children that may not have had the opportunity to get presents this year.

“The Mankato, MN Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program is 100% run by Volunteers. Is hosted by the Mankato Marine Corps League since the fall of 2004. It operates within the National U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation, which began in the fall of 1947. Its mission is to collect and distribute NEW and UNWRAPPED toys to Blue Earth, Waseca, Nicollet, and LeSueur Counties needy children for Christmas. Cash and gift cards that are received are used to purchase toys as per the directives from our National Foundation. Children must be 0 to 14 years of age to qualify for the Mankato Toys for Tots program.”
