We are thrilled to let you know that Tom Foolery’s Bar is an official drop-off location for Toys For Tots. If you aren’t familiar with the holiday program, here is a little information:
Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity located in Triangle, Virginia, serves to fund, raise funds for, and support the program.
The mission of the program “is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”
The stated goal 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, and patriotic citizens.”
If you’d like to participate this holiday season, you can drop off any unwrapped toy directly at the restaurant.
Happy Holiday, fools!
