Donors may drop new unwrapped toys in the bin in the lobby of the Government Center, located at 1300 Courthouse Road, Stafford, VA 22554. Donations will be accepted through December 14, 2022. The Government Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Last year, the Quantico Marine Toys for Tots drive distributed 146,148 toys to 145,284 children in the area. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has run Toys for Tots for 75 years. They have distributed 627 million toys to 281 million children to date. The primary mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.
There are other ways interested patrons may assist. Your business or organization can host a special event with Marines or become a local drop site. You can sign up to volunteer with the drive.
