PEAC Hosts Toys for Tots Collection for US Marines
Ewing, NJ (December 4, 2015) Now through December 12, 2015, PEAC Health & Fitness will be a collection site for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. Anyone is welcome to drop off new, unwrapped toys, which will be distributed at Christmas to local, underprivileged children. PEAC’s collection is in conjunction with Battery G 3rd Battalion 14th Marines, located in Ft. Dix, NJ.
According to the U.S. Marine Corps, “The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” Toys for Tots campaigns are typically held in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.
This is PEAC’s eighth year supporting Toys for Tots. Christine Salmon, PEAC Program and Events Coordinator states, “PEAC is very involved in the local community, but of all the organizations and activities we support, bringing joy to children during the holidays is among the most fulfilling.”
