The Marine Corps League-Westchester County Detachment is the proud sponsor of the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program here in Westchester County. The 2020 Westchester County Toys for Tots campaign has wrapped up for the 2020 season.
This year’s campaign had our challenges with COVID-19, losing our long-time warehouse, and losing 53% of our collection points. Like Marines do, we adapted, and overcame. This year, with your help, we serviced a record breaking 24,091 children and with 54,963 toys distributed.
We would like to acknowledge the many First Responders, (Police, Fire and EMS) that assisted in collecting toys for our campaign, and the 184 businesses that hosted collection points, those who donated via our virtual toy’s drives and all those who donated toys and monetary donations.
Our mission would not have been possible without the dedicated team of volunteers who worked tirelessly to get the toys counted, sorted and back out to the children in need. We would like to recognize those Detachment Members that participated in this year’s campaign, whether it was hosting a collection points, conducting a toy drives/events, volunteering in our warehouse or helping to collect and distribute toys:
- Ken Davis
- Liz Dreaper
- Jim Maisano
- Peter Parente
- Rev. Mary Phifer
- Kevin Sylvester
- Kelly & Steve Topilnycky (Coordinators)
As we concluded this years campaign, we are already thinking about next year. Please give us a head start!
