The New York Jets, in conjunction with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program and A-1 First Class Moving and Storage, will hold their annual Touchdown for Tots Toy Drive on Sunday, Dec. 2, at MetLife Stadium before the game against the Arizona Cardinals. Fans are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to benefit the Toys for Tots program that will be collected at all gates upon entering the stadium.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not-for-profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.
Now in its 65th year, Toys for Tots provides joy and a message of hope to less fortunate children through the gift of a new toy or book during the Christmas holiday season. These gifts offer children hope, recognition and a positive memory they will cherish for a lifetime. Many of the books, games, and sports equipment the foundation provides as gifts make a significant contribution to the educational, social and physical development of these children. In 2010, Marines distributed toys to more than 7.2 million children who might not have otherwise experienced the magic of the Christmas holiday season. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation relies on individual donations from the American public as well as support from corporate sponsors. For more information, visit toysfortots.org.
