What is Toys for Tots?

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is “to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.” We want to unite members of all the local organizations in Norfolk through a common cause: Helping make a child’s life better this holiday season.

What Can I Donate?

Toys for Tots does not publish a list of appropriate toys to donate, but all toys must still be in their original package. Toys for Tots does not accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. Toys should not be gift wrapped. Toys for Tots is able to assist children up to age 12 (sometimes up to age 16). Consider donating items for pre-teens and teens, in addition to toys for younger children.

We would love to collect items like these from local meetups, groups and organizations:

  • Art supplies – markers, pencils, sketchpads, paint, brushes, etc.
  • Science, engineering, or building sets
  • Educational books and coloring and activity books
  • Remote control cars/helicopters
  • Handheld or portable electronics

If you prefer to make a monetary donation directly to Toys for Tots, you can do so at http://www.toysfortots.org/donate/

Where and When Should I Donate?

You can drop off toys at Hatch (111 Granby Street) during business hours (9am – 5pm Monday thru Friday) until December 14th.
