Toys For Kids

Vermont Marine Corps League collecting toys for Kids for Christmas

Our Mission

In spite of Covid-19,RSV,and the Flu in 2023 we were able to help hundreds of families this year because of your generosity. Whether you donated toys, labor, financially, or space for a Toy Barrel - it all counts ! A special thank-you to Jerihill Ace Hardware in Jericho Vt for being our "Virtual Toy Barrel". Well done one and all !.

Toys for Kids of Vermont is a volunteer program sponsored by the Vermont Marine Corps League which collects new, unwrapped toys during the Christmas season and oversees their distribution to needy children in Vermont. All money collected stays in Vermont and is used to purchase age appropriate toys to supplement donations, and for older children.

Over twenty thousand Vermont kids live below the poverty level and at Christmas time. The Toys for Kids program provides those kids with toys.It is our goal to see that no child in Vermont wakes up on Christmas morning and asks, "Why can't Santa come to my house?"
