Help Us Fill This Truck With Toys for Tots During the Parade of Lights.
The Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program is asking the community to participate in this year's Parade of Lights. The Parade theme is "All I Want For Christmas", and the Marines are asking parade-goers to bring a toy with them to the parade route on Sunday night. When the truck passes by, Marines will collect the toys and place them in the truck. Hopefully, by the end of the parade, our wish will be met with " A Truck Full of Toys" ! The Toys for Tots truck will be leading the Parade, beginning at 5:00 p.m. Sunday evening, November 25th.

It would be great, and appreciated, if everyone would give a toy to the truck as it passes by you in the parade Sunday. Make a child happy this Christmas
