DYNAMITE DONATIONS! Bryson Garrett and Sam Atwood were two of the many Gulf Breeze Middle School students who donated new toys to the Marines Corps Toys for Tots program.

This Christmas, Gulf Breeze Middle School and the local Optimist club are holding a Marine Toys for Tots drive in the lobby of the school. The goal for Toys for Tots is to donate new unwrapped toys to give to less fortunate kids for Christmas. Donations of new, unwrapped toys are being accepted through Friday, November 30.

Toys for Tots has been around for 71 years and since 1947 the Marine Toys for Tots has distributed 548 million toys to 251 kids. According to the Toys for Tots website,  “Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR founds Toys for Tots in Los Angeles, California. 5,000 toys were collected and distributed to less fortunate children during a campaign before Christmas 1947.” Other ways to donate to Toys for Tots are online and by mail. You can also donate many other things this Christmas season.

Toys for Tots will accept most toys to donate but according to the website, “Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food.  If donated, such items will NOT be distributed.” People can donate more than just toys; they can donate cash or even check donations to Toys for Tots.
