Toys For Tots Campaign Cumberland County, Tennessee Toys For Tots, has been a national charitable program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve for 74 years. It provides happiness and hope to less fortunate children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by Marines and volunteers offer these children recognition, confidence, and a positive memory for a lifetime. We believe that such experiences help disadvantaged children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity, is the fundraising, funding, and support organization for the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The foundation was created at the behest of the United States Marine Corps and provides support in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding with the Commander, Marine Forces Reserve, who directs the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The foundation and its partnership with the Marine Corps League has supported Toys for Tots since 1991 and supplemented local campaigns with tens of millions of toys valued at over one billion dollars. As we implement this program in Crossville and surrounding Cumberland County communities, one important thing to remember is that we are local people helping local families. In the upcoming Christmas seasons it will be our mission, as part of the Marine Corps League, to support the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. For more information, click on the link below.
