Once again, the Town of Seabrook Island is holding a toy drive in support of the Toys for Tots program. The Toys for Tots program was established in 1947 by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and has been managed by the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation since 1991. Each year, the program collects and distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. Since its founding in 1947, the Toys for Tots program has collected and distributed more than 500 million toys to children across the country.
Spearheaded in the early 2000’s by former Town Councilman Bob Ferguson and former Town Administrator Randy Pierce – both of whom served in the U.S. Marines Corps – the Town of Seabrook Island has supported the Toys for Tots program for nearly 20 years.
New, unwrapped toys may be dropped off at Town Hall during the Christmas Drop-In on Thursday, December 12, 2019, from noon until 2 pm, or anytime between now and December 12.
