Make A Difference For A Child This Christmas With Toys For Tots

Are you looking for a way to help others during the Christmas season? Consider donating or volunteering at the Marine Toys for Tots.

For 64 years, the Marine Toys for Tots has helped children in need experience the joy of Christmas. Our very own Cherrie Carney, an account manager in Georgia, is the media coordinator for the Toys for Tots Atlanta campaign and recently gave an interview to Community Perspective explaining how you can help.

The Atlanta Toys for Tots is one of the largest campaigns in the country. There’s a growing need to help children during the holidays, especially given the economy. Last year they helped collect 700,000 toys for the community. This year they’ve received a request for more than 821,000 toys.

You can help them reach their goal by donating a toy at one of the 1,200 drop sites located throughout 17 Atlanta counties. There are also opportunities to volunteer or donate cash at www.atlantatoysfortots.com.
