Over the 62 years of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, Marines have distributed more than 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children. This charitable endeavor has made U. S. Marines the unchallenged leader in looking after less fortunate children at Christmas. Over its 18 year life span, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has supplemented local toy collections with more than 81.3 million toys valued at more than $487 million; plus has provided promotion and support materials valued at over $6.3 million.

This year we need you more than ever, because as the city grows, so does the number of families counting on the Toys for Tots program. The program covers not only families in Las Vegas, but also Boulder City, Pahrump and some of the other communities nearby.

This year, over 50,000 toys are needed in order to reach every needy child in Southern Nevada.
