Christmas is almost here and many Christian music fans are looking for last-minute ways to help the needy this year. One charity is a perennial favorite in Nashville--the U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.
Founded in 1991, Toys for Tots is an official activity of the U. S. Marine Corps and a mission of the Marine Corps Reserve. The Toys for Tots bins now appear in stores in all 50 states and can be found in at least three popular chains in Nashville: Publix, Walgreens and Toys "R" Us.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is an official Better Business Bureau charity, has earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, and repeatedly ranks on the Philanthropy 400 list.
Over its life span, the Marine Toys for Tots Program has given out over 469 million toys to over 216 million less fortunate children. This year you can find the toy bins at Walgreens, Publix and Toys "R" Us where Santa Shaq appears on the bin. Toys "R" Us is also collecting monetary donations for Toys for Tots.
Gospel music fans are known for their generosity and the convenient Toys for Tots bins provide a good way to give a child a Merry Christmas.
