Township Administration Building is a Collection Site for Toys for Tots


Donating a Toy is one of the experiences that makes Marine Toys for Tots different from other programs.

When you place a toy in a Marine Toys for Tots collection box, you experience the joy of knowing that toy will be under the tree in a family’s home and bring a smile to a less fortunate child Christmas morning.

Toy Drop Site Locations and toy collections are setup and managed by the Local Marine Toys for Tots Campaign.  There is a Toys For Tots Collection Box located in the Township Administration Building’s lobby.  The box will be here until December 12th.

Thank you for supporting Marine Toys for Tots.
