For the eighth year, PGSCD was proud to participate in the local Toys for Tots Drive! Run nationwide by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots has been bringing joy to children and their families since 1947. The nationwide campaign encourages the collection of donations of new, unwrapped toys to be distributed to those in need. Businesses and organizations participate on a local level and encouraged their community to engage with the program. We were proud to donate over three full boxes for the Toys for Tots Drive! We’d also like to thank Corporal Schnitzenbaumer for his help and service in the community.

For 2020, Prince George’s County made another huge impact with the donation of 62,808 toys, helping a total of 20,500 children! And for the campaign overall, Marine Toys for Tots distributed over 20.2 million toys, books, and games to over 7.3 million children. The COVID-19 pandemic didn’t stop this campaign from being even bigger than the year before!
