Toys For Kids

Vermont Marine Corps League collecting toys for Kids for Christmas

Our Mission

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?"

Help Give Children Toys This Christmas

  1. Find a collection barrel location
  2. Bring new, unwrapped toy and drop it in the red barrel with white snowflakes
  3. Volunteers who monitor the barrels collect the toys and distribute them to other charitable organizations like the Salvation Army, Light Ministries and various church groups.
  4. Gift Cards for Teens
  5. As you may know "Toys for Kids" is the state's largest Christmas toy collection program for kids in need that is 100% volunteer. Our signature red collection barrels with the white snowflakes on them collect toys for kids between the ages of 1 thru 14, but ages 15 thru 17 not so much, so we buy gift cards for that group of teens with the dollars which are donated. We buy thousands of dollars in gift cards, so we need your help. Dollars in any amount or gift cards for teens in the $25 to $30 range would be help full. This help can happen at any time during the year as we are engaged year round with "Toys for Kids". The gift cards would be a big help by fall as by November we are in full swing providing agencies like The Salvation Army with toys and gift cards for kids in need. We are doing our best but we need your help - please! Donations may be sent to : Toys for Kids P.O. Box 4092 Burlington, Vt. 05406
