Toys for Tots
Every year there are local families who struggle with making their incomes stretch for bills. When you add the complications of the holidays, those families can’t afford to buy gifts for their children. The Toys for Tots program is a wonderful foundation that gives back to these struggling families.
U.S. Protection Service takes pride in ensuring that we give back to our local communities every chance possible. Every holiday season we want to make an impact that benefits the community and shows our support for our troop, and find a message that strikes close to our own hearts.
Toys for Tots is a foundation of the United States Marine Corps Reserve established in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR, in Los Angeles, California. By 1996, the mission had been expanded to all 50 states. Over the years, the Toys for Tots Foundation grew in recognition and in 2002 was awarded a 4-star rating by the Charity Navigator. To date, the foundation has distributed over 469 million toys to more than 216 million children.
U.S. Protection Service is proud to have among its employees and management staff former Marines, along with those from other military branches. When we were looking for a charitable organization to work with, Toys for Tots Foundation was the natural choice.
