San Diego Toys for Tots 2013
'Tis better to give than to receive. That phrase rings especially true around the holidays in San Diego. The Marines hold this phrase in highest esteem as well. Their San Diego Toys for Tots 2013 program is currently accepting donations throughout the Southland to distribute to those less fortunate children whose families are struggling to make ends meet right now.
What: San Diego Toys for Tots 2013
Where: Various locations throughout the San Diego area
When: Now through December 20, 2013
Contact: Capt Evita Mosqueda-Chapman (619) 292-9191 or via San Diego Toys for Tots email
What began as a small group of Los Angeles-based Marine reservists trying to distribute toys to local families in need during the holidays has grown into a time-honored Christmas tradition throughout the entire country. Since 1995, the Toys for Tots campaign has been an official activity of the US Marine Corps, thanks to approval by the Secretary of Defense. Toys collected through the San Diego Toys for Tots 2013 campaign will be distributed to needy children in the San Diego area after December 20th. All you need to do is donate a new, unwrapped gift for any age (from newborn to teen) in person at any participating location in San Diego. Please visit the San Diego Toys for Tots website to find a location near you.
If you cannot make a donation in person, monetary donations are accepted at the San Diego Toys for Tots website. Money received from the San Diego Toys for Tots 2013 campaign will be used to purchase presents for children in the age groups that may have a shortfall of donations. For example, the bulk of donations received tend to be for younger children. However, tweens and teens also need something to unwrap at Christmastime. Any money received will help ensure that their needs are met as well.
The only items not accepted for donations to the San Diego Toys for Tots 2013 campaign are realistic looking weapons or gifts that contain food items. So, when you are out shopping for your children this weekend, consider picking up an extra gift or two to donate to this year's Toys for Tots program. Happy holidays, everyone!
