Toys for Tots is a great opportunity to help a child have a merrier Christmas. this year, our friends at the Lake Charles Police Department have teamed up with The Marine Corps to have a successful toy drive.

From the official LCPD press release:

 

 

Toys for Tots, the Marine Corps’ premier community action program, is one of the nation’s flagship charitable endeavors and an American tradition.  The Toys for Tots message of hope for the future has motivated youngsters to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.  Toys for Tots has earned the distinction as a program which plays an important role in helping youngsters emerge from a background of poverty to adulthood as assets to society.  Toys for Tots not only benefits children, but also has a positive impact on communities, on businesses – large and small, on the Marine Corp and on the nation.

The Lake Charles Police Department is proud to support the mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program by collecting new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year. These toys are distributed as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.

If you would like to make a donation to the Toys for Tots program, you may drop off new, unwrapped toys at the Lake Charles Police Department (830 Enterprise Boulevard) by December 17, 2014.
