Our goal this was to fill, from front to back, all three of our Medic Units with new, unwrapped toys. I am happy to say that we were able to fulfill that goal for the U.S. Marine Corps' Reserves Toys for Tots Foundation so that hundreds of boys and girls could wake up on Christmas morning and have a brand new toy under their Christmas tree.
We received everything from teddy bears and board games to bicycles and basket balls. We could not have done this if it weren't for the generosity and kindness of our great community. Thank you so much for buying that extra toy while out Christmas shopping and dropping it off at our station.
A very special "Thank you" to the Young at Heart Club in Havre de Grace. This generous group brought toys to their meetings in December and helped us greatly fulfill our goal of filling our third medic unit.
We live in a very special community of caring people. We would also like to thank the media, especially the Record and Aegis newspapers and the Havre de Grace "Patch" for advertising our toy drive this year.
As you start shopping for Christmas, 2013 please remember to pick up an extra toy for Toys for Tots. We will be back next year and our goal will again be to fill our Medic Units with new toys. Again, Thank You for making our toy drive a huge success again this year.
