  • Greenwich shared its bounty for the holidays with collections for Toys for Tots! On Dec. 14, a toy collection took place at the Cos Cob Firehouse. It was a very cold morning — but fun for all!

    The Connecticut Air & Space Center’s second annual toy collection for Toys for Tots was a rousing success, officials said. Working with the Bridgeport Marine Corp League, the airport community in and around Sikorsky Memorial Airport wanted to make sure that there were many smiling faces this Christmas. Stanziale’s Restaurant hosted the collection site in the lobby with more than six large boxes of toys donated. (See photo below).

  • The mission is to assist the U. S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. This assistance includes supporting the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program by raising funds to provide toys to supplement the collections of local Toys for Tots campaigns, to provide promotional and support material and defray the costs of conducting annual Toys for Tots campaigns. Other Foundation support includes providing administrative, advisory, financial, logistic and promotional support to local Toys for Tots Coordinators; managing funds raised and monies donated based on the use of Toys for Tots name or logo; providing other support the Marine Corps, as a federal agency, cannot provide; and conducting public education and information programs about Toys for Tots that call the general public to action in support of this patriotic community action program.

    The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help needy children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable natural resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
