Toys for Tots Drive

Mission Of Toys For Tots:

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Their Goal:

The primary goal of Toys for Tots 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, patriotic citizens.

Their Objectives:

The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

Every year Dr. Wertel, his family and staff host a Toys for Tots toy drive in December in an effort to support the Toys for Tots Program's Mission, Goals & Objectives.

Keep posted for this year's Toys for Tots Drive and help Dr. Wertel's office support the youth of St. Louis.
