Members and friends of the Alabama Marines Foundation are preparing to kick off the 2017 U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign later this month by meeting with families to accept their toy applications. We’re excited to get started and expect to have a busy and productive couple of months.

We would like to thank all of you who partnered with us last year, and in previous years, to bring Christmas hope and joy to thousands of area children. Your holiday spirit and generosity make our mission possible year after year.

To all of the participating businesses, schools, churches, civic clubs, city and University of Alabama departments, and individuals who provided toys, monetary donations or grants, and in-kind support, we offer our sincere appreciation. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
