The Toys for Tots Program is Back at the Cove of Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva, WI, November 26, 2009 --( The Cove of Lake Geneva has once again become an official drop-off location for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The mission of the program is to collect new, unwrapped toys which will be distributed as Christmas gifts to the less fortunate children in the area where the campaign is held.

This year will mark the 62nd year the program has run with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Program distributing more than 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children. Each year this program grows both in drop-off locations, toys donated and children receiving toys.

Last year, local campaigns were conducted in 657 communities in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands – an increase of 53 sites from 2007. Over 16.2 million toys were distributed to 7.6 million children, making it one of the best years for the Toys for Tots program.

The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve programs goal with the Toys for Tots Program is to promote a message of hope to the less fortunate children. They do it with the anticipation that these children will grow up to become responsible citizens by learning about the generous gifts community members can bring to one another.

The ultimate success of this program depends on the generosity of the community and their gracious donations. Through this program, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves aim to unite all members of local communities in a common cause through the annual toy collection and distribution campaign with the hopes of contributing to better communities in the future.

The Toys for Tots program will be accepting new, unwrapped toys at The Cove of Lake Geneva through December 21st. The donation box will be located in the main lobby of the resort and those who donate will receive 10% off their next stay at The Cove of Lake Geneva.
