Community Service:

Toys for Tots Collection Drive:

Monday, Nov. 30th to Friday Dec. 11th

What it's about: The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Participation Details: There will be boxes for collecting toys outside the band room. Please send in a new, unwrapped toy (purchase price of your choice) and place in the box outside the band room. Please fill out the community service form and send in with your toy donation. Toys will be delivered to a drop off location by the Community Service chair during the week of December 14th.
