Toys for Tots Program
No child should ever wake up on Christmas morning without a present to open and no parent should have to go through the heartache of looking into a child’s disappointed eyes. The Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots Program has been in existence since 1947 and has supplied millions of toys to disadvantaged children across the United States. Based on the need to work with non-profit organizations to ensure the continued expansion and success of the program, the Secretary of Defense, in August 1991, authorized the Marine Corps to recognize and work with charities committed to supporting Toys for Tots. BOLO has been blessed to be able to participate in this program since 1994. BOLO also welcomes donations of finances as well as new andÂ gently used toys from the community to meet the list of growing recipients.
