Toys for Tots & Marine Corps Thank You
Thursday, January 05, 2012Print this Article
The following reflects the sentiments of thanks from not only the Marine Corps League, but also The Christian Center. We were privileged to be a part of this year's event and serve so many in need:
"On behalf of the Marine Corp League, Mounds Detachment of Madison County, I would like to thank all of the merchants, schools, auto dealers, restaurants, churches, United Auto Workers Retirees and also the vast network of military organizations that supported our efforts this year in our annual TOYS FOR TOTS campaign. A special thanks to those of you who again this year, as every year, went above and beyond.
A special thanks also goes out to the American Legion Post 127 who took time and resources to host a fund raiser for our group. This was a great time and enjoyed by all who attended. And, to The Christian Center, our largest distributor along with thanks to the many volunteers who spent long hours insuring that many of the children in Madison County were again able to have a Christmas to remember.
It took all of us as a team to achieve our goals and provide twice as many toys (four toys per child) to the children than we had last year. In fact, this year's TOYS FOR TOTS campaign has been the most successful that this detachment has had in the last twenty-nine years.
It just shows what this great community can do to help the children at this time of the year. As good as it was this year, we will strive to do even better next year so there can be many more children waking up on Christmas morning knowing they have not been forgotten.
Thank you all,
TOYS FOR TOTS Coordinator
