From the Toy for Tots website:

U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program

MISSION:
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

GOAL:
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

OBJECTIVES:
The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate 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 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.

ACTIVITIES:
The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located.  In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign.  Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.”

Commemorate 9/11! Honor the Victims!

This 9/11 Anniversary, Honor the Victims, Reflect on 9/11 History (This article is from the 9/11 Memorial & Museum website)

 

Commemorate 9/11!

The 16th anniversary of 9/11 is quickly approaching and, as in years past, the families of those who were so senselessly killed on that terrible day will gather at the 9/11 Memorial in commemoration of their loved ones. On this solemn day, it is a sacred obligation for each of us to remember those who were killed, recognize all who survived, honor the sacrifices of the first responders and recovery workers, and recapture the spirit of unity and service that arose in the immediate aftermath of the attacks. We invite you to observe the anniversary in your own communities.

Here in New York, Tribute in Light will once again illuminate the New York City skyline as a symbol of our endurance and as a powerful reminder of the strength we found on 9/11.

I encourage you to seek out commemorative events in your home town, whether that be in the classroom, by participating in public service programs, or by gathering with neighbors and friends to pay tribute. The Memorial & Museum offers information and resources about 9/11 to enrich your observance, including suggestions for commemorative activities. Once you’ve decided how you will observe this year’s anniversary, we ask that you share your tributes and messages of remembrance online, using #Honor911.

In addition to these resources, which are available throughout the year, now through September 7, 2017, we invite 9/11 memorial sites from around the globe that are listed in our memorials registry, along with educational institutions and government entities, to submit an application to license select 9/11 Memorial content. This toolkit includes photos of the Memorial plaza and several oral history clips from eyewitnesses for use in 9/11 anniversary commemorations. Learn more by completing a simple online application here: https://www.911memorial.org/toolkit.

Whether you are viewing the Tribute in Light here in New York, learning about 9/11 in your classroom, or paying tribute through acts of service in your local community, I hope you will join us in the essential act of remembrance.

With warm regards,

Alice M. Greenwald

President & CEO
