TOYS FOR TOTS
Toys for Tots 2017
The 2017 holiday campaign for the Marine Corps League of Winston Salem Toys for Tots campaign was the most successful in the history of the local program. It's so important that the community knows how great it was for them to respond as they do each and every year and your help is needed for this. Be sure and tell everyone you can of the campaigns success.
A total of 51,021 toys were collected throughout the community for the Christmas 2017 campaign... Toys consist of toys, books and stocking stuffer's for the children of the multi-county communities.
This equates to serving 7,575 children and several thousand families. The distribution in conjunction with the Salvation Army also included Brenner Children's Hospital, The Ronald McDonald House and other organizations.
Kudos to our Toys for Tots Coordinator, George Gerdes, for his leadership and drive to make the campaign such a record success. THANK YOU MARINE GERDES....
The Marine Corps League wants to thank those that helped with the coordination and execution of the campaign and more importantly the citizens in our community that contributed to the program as they did.
