DOVER, DE (December 23, 2014) — Dover Federal Credit Union is proud to announce its participation in the annual ‘Toys for Tots’ toy drive, a program that helps the Marine Corps collect and distribute toys for less fortunate children in our community.

Toys for Tots is a program put on by the Marine Corps Reserves, we were glad to join them for this great cause.

Toys for Tots
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. 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.
