Welcome to the 74th National Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Campaign! From a single
Marine Corps Reserve unit in 1947 helping children in Los Angeles, this is the 74th year that
Marines and volunteers will give their time and energy to support less fortunate children. We look
forward to another great year supporting you and your volunteer’s efforts bringing the joy of
Christmas to millions of less fortunate children across all 50 states, the District of Columbia,
Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands.
This year, we move from the "once in a lifetime” pandemic to a Nation eager to reopen and get
back to normal. Last year, throughout lockdowns and threat of illness for you, your Marines, and
your volunteers, your adapted, overcame, and shattered previous records from previous
campaigns by distributing over 20 million toys to 7.4 million less fortunate children. Many of
you learned new and more efficient ways to collect and distribute toys. Use that knowledge to
make this year’s campaign even better!
