Toys for Tots Logo Campaigns 75th

Toys for Tots, the U.S. Marine Corps’ premiere Community Action Program, distributed 24.4 million toys, books, and games to a record 9.9 million children in need in 2022. “We were astounded by the support provided by the American Public and our Corporate Sponsors. They helped us not only accomplish the mission, but greatly exceed ALL expectations,” said Lieutenant General Laster, President & CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. He continued, “these unprecedented numbers were an incredible milestone to celebrate the Program’s 75th year of supporting underprivileged children in 833 communities across the Nation.”


Today’s children are tomorrow’s future, and Marine Toys for Tots is dedicated to ensuring it’s as bright as possible for children living in challenging circumstances. The assistance given did more than simply provide toys and gifts – it also restored hope and self-worth to those less fortunate.
