We believe every child deserves a little Christmas!
Every year, as we approach the Christmas season, our local Toys for Tots team and their helpers gear up for the Christmas season.
Our goal is to put smiles on the faces of the less fortunate children in the Crossroads area by providing toys to ALL children who wouldn’t otherwise 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.
Last year with the generosity of our community, over 9,000 children in the Crossroads area received toys!
Registration starts November 1st – December 7th at Faith Family Church, 2002 E. Mockingbird Ln (M – F 9am-5pm), Kidz Connection, and our local schools (M-F 9am-3pm)
There are TWO options for obtaining toys for your children:
- If you have a child that attends VISD, you can register your ENTIRE FAMILY with your school’s Parent Liaison.
- If you do not have a child that attends VISD, you can register at the FAITH FAMILY CHURCH main office (2002 Mockingbird Ln)

Toys for Tots, National
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.
