Faith Family Church partners with the Victoria Marines Toys For Tots to Deliver a Message of Hope this Christmas.

 

 “Every Child Deserves a Little Christmas”.

 

As the holiday season draws near, you can be sure the local Toys for Tots team and their helpers are gearing up for this year’s Toys for Tots campaign! 

Since 1947, Marines have been making Christmas wishes come true. The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate children by providing a new toy at Christmas and that, through the process, inspires them to become responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens. 

Last year with the generosity of our community, approximately 7,200 children in the Crossroads area received toys.  In our community’s current economic climate and ongoing recovery from Hurricane Harvey, we expect the need to be even greater this year than the last, and we are asking for your help! 

If interested in becoming a sponsor or hosting a toy drive in this year’s Toys for Tots campaign, contact “Col Mike” Petrash at (361) 573-2484 ext. 11 or email colmike@myffc.com.

 

Toys for Tots Notes

Our goal is to help our less fortunate families by providing toys to ALL children in the Crossroads area who wouldn’t experience the joy of Christmas.  No child gets left behind!

Practically speaking we need to collect and/or purchase 20,000 toys this Season. Monetary donations are extremely important, and should be addressed to Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

We need new, unwrapped toys donated ranging from $10 - $15.

 

In addition to Victoria County, we are again working to provide toys to children in Jackson, Calhoun, Goliad, and Dewitt Counties. However, we still need help in these counties--partnering with non-profit organizations to help find and register children in need; and, distributing toys to them.

We are also the toy-source for several non-profit groups including: Salvation Army, Devereaux, Restoration House, Perpetual Help Home, CASA, Celebrate Recovery, etc.

Registration for toys is going on now through December 8, 2017 at Faith Family Church (M – F 9am-5pm), Kidz Connection, and the local schools (M-F 9am-3pm)

 If you would like to partner with us, volunteer with us, or request to be one of the 150 drop-off sites, please contact us at www.victoria-tx.toysfortots.org or call 361-573-2484 x 11.
