The campaign also had an extremely successful year in receiving over $43.2 million in donations from corporate sponsors, website donations and direct mail solicitations.

What is Toys for Tots?

Toys for Tots is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity created by the United States Marines Reserves to collect toys and then distribute them to less fortunate children. The program started in 1947 with World War II veterans in Los Angeles. Currently, there are toy collection campaigns in 700 communities in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. As in the past, there are many corporate sponsors of the holiday toy drive including: Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Hasbro, and Hess, just to name a few. The program partners with local social welfare agencies, church groups and other local community agencies to distribute the toys to children for Christmas. Local toy collections begin in October and last until mid-December, so the toys can be distributed by Christmas. There are many ways to donate to Toys for Tots from dropping off an unwrapped toy to a collection box or make a donation via the Toys for Tots website. If you can’t make it to an ezStorage Toys for Tots drop off locations, you can find other places in your community that are collection sites for the campaign. ezStorage thanks everyone for their Toys for Tots donations to this great and worthwhile organization.
