The New Jersey Office celebrated Christmas in July by collecting toys to be donated to the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program in West Trenton.  The basic mission of the program is to collect new unwrapped toys & distribute them to less fortunate children to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope.  The program began in 1947 and last year distributed 24.4 million toys, books & games to 9.9 million children in need, with the West Trenton chapter distributing 14,125 toys to 11,453 children.
