The Mesa County U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year, and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.

When I was at my rock radio station in Wichita, KS we partnered with the local Marines and their Toys For Tots campaign. Our annual holiday concert was the premier local event. We helped raise donations and awareness for the cause. It's a charity close to my heart and I wanted to share the efforts here in Junction.

Every year hundreds of families sign up for the program in Mesa County. Every year, Toys for Tots gives out toys to families in need. The goal is to make sure every family gets plenty of toys and a game to pick out. All toy donations need to be new and unwrapped.

The Toys for Tots donation boxes are spread all over the Grand Valley. Click here for the location nearest you.
