Toys For Tots

Donating a toy is one of the experiences that makes Marine Toys for Tots different from other programs. When you place a toy in a Marine Toys for Tots collection box or donate it to one of their local campaigns, you experience the joy of knowing that toy will be under the tree in a family’s home and bring a smile to a less fortunate child Christmas morning.

They are located in the old “Local 581 Union Hall,” between Atherton and Hemphill roads, directly across from Hurley Health & Fitness. Phone: (810) 715-4401.
