Liz Moore & Associates Collecting Games for Toys for Tots this Holiday Season

Posted by Lynnette Tully on Thu, Nov 15, 2018 @ 10:28 AM

BoardGameDrive_eCardHelp us make Christmas full of fun and games! We are collecting new and unwrapped board games for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation! When you are out doing that holiday shopping, pick up a game and bring it by one of our offices. 

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.

Toys for Tots' stated goal is to "deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens."
