Through the generous donations and monetary gifts of Fresno County residents, the U.S. Marine Corps, in collaboration with the United Way Fresno and Madera Counties, we distribute tens of thousands of new toys to needy children in the Valley. This could not have been made possible without the generous support of the community, who rallied together to donate toys/cash, host collection drives or simply volunteered!
The goal each year is that each needy child in Fresno & Madera Counties gets the opportunity to feel the joy of unwrapping a new toy on Christmas – in hopes that they will pay it forward and grow to be patriotic, productive citizens and community leaders. Each year, as the Holiday season comes around, we count on the giving spirit of our community to give back to those who are less fortunate. One new toy can bring happiness to the hearts of many!
