What is Toys for Tots?
Toys for Tots started back in 1947 thanks to the collective efforts by former Marine Corps Reserve Major Bill Hendricks and his wife Diane. Back then, she originally crafted her own dolls and Bill delivered them to help children in need. Today, Toys for Tots has supported more than 251 million children through the program, as people have donated more than 548 toys to the cause.
