Post 2164 is part of the Marines Toys for Tots program and we invite you to become part of it, too!
Just bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Post and drop it into the Toys for Tots box. Your toy donation will help spread holiday cheer to thousands of needy children in DuPage and Kane counties.
The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the poverty rate in 2011 was 15.1%, with more than 16 million children living in poverty. You can bring smiles to some of those children's faces on Christmas morning with your kind donation of a toy.
As in years past, the DuPage/Eastern Kane County Toys for Tots program is locally coordinated by Marine Corps League Detachment 399, whose home base is Post 2164. Last year, 69,583 toys were collected and distributed to 68 agencies in DuPage and Kane counties. In turn, 27,043 children each received 3 new toys for Christmas!
Help the Marines ensure that needy children in our community wake up on Christmas morning to find gifts under the tree! Drop a toy into the box now until Dec. 14.
