The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation assists the U.S. Marine Corps in giving new toys to disadvantaged children at Christmas. Most of the children served are 12 years old or younger. Today, there are nearly 25,000 Marines, Marine Corps League members, veteran Marines and volunteers involved in the annual campaigns.
