If you are unfamiliar with the Marine Corps Toys For Tots, they are an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity founded by the United States Marine Corps in 1991. The basic mission of the Toys For Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. Many businesses across the Lowcountry signed up this year to be a toy drop off location.
