Landing fee is 1 NEW gift (at least a $15 value) donation, or $15 cash. This is a fun fly so fly whatever you bring event.
Who can donate? Anyone can drop by toys we will make sure they get to the Marine’s local Toys for Tots program.
What kind of toy would you like me to donate?
Any new, unwrapped toy will be appreciated. Keep in mind, toys for younger children and older children are often in high demand. So please consider these types of toys as you make your toy selections.
As a business leader, what can I do to help the Toys for Tots drive?
You play a key role by allowing the Marines to place collection bins in your stores and by bringing the toys you’ve collected so far to one of the drop off locations.
Who gets the toys that are donated locally?
Local kids get the toys. For example, toys donated in the St. Joseph County area are distributed to children in the St. Joseph County area.
Who distributes the toys?
As Christmas nears, Marines distribute toys themselves and enlist the aid of local social service agencies — and churches — to help out during the Christmas season.
General Public Welcome. Come and watch, talk to RC pilots, donate a toy.
