Did you know that over 20,000 children right here in Bergen County, are living in poverty? Historically, children who live in poverty tend to experience negative health outcomes, be involved in the state child protection and juvenile justice systems, and struggle in school. With the holidays around the corner, these children are especially reminded of their unmet needs.
The United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program was founded in 1947 to bring the joy of the holidays to children in need. For these children, receiving a toy when they would otherwise have nothing shows them that they are deserving of love. The stated goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver “a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.”
We are raising funds to support the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation, so that Bergen County children in need can experience the magic and wonder of the holiday season.
Our agency will donate $10 to Toys for Tots on your behalf for every recommendation you send our way, and we’ll add you to our monthly drawing for a $50 Gift Card.
