In 2023, the U.S. Marine Corp reports that 10.2 million children were served and more than 25.4 million toys, books, and stocking stuffers were distributed across the United States.

 

“Toys for Tots distributes toys and books to millions of less fortunate children each year. We wouldn’t be able to reach so many children were it not for the help received from our corporate partners like Fareway. Their community service goals certainly align with those the Marine Corps has promoted for over seven decades through our Toys for Tots Program,” said Col. Ted “Migs” Silvester, U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation vice president of marketing and development. “With Fareway’s generous support, Toys for Tots will be able to fulfill the holiday dreams of thousands of less fortunate children year-after-year who otherwise might be forgotten.”

 

Congratulations to the top 10 Fareway locations during this year’s Toys for Tots round up.
