St. James Woodworkers Community Service Project
Toys for Tots began in 1947 and in 1991 at the request of the Marine Corps, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation was established to help run and support the Toys for Tots program. On a national level, more than 7,000,000 toys are distributed at Christmas to needy children. The foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity.
