All About Toys for Tots

Since 1996, the U.S. Marine Forces Reserve has collected new, unwrapped toys for 3 months every year throughout the United States and distributed these toys as Christmas presents to less fortunate children in communities in which the campaigns, known as Toys for Tots, are conducted.

Toys for Tots ultimately aims to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters. The Marines strive to play an active role in the development of our nation’s children and to unite members of local communities in a common cause.

If you want to donate a toy but don’t know what to buy, consider what would be an appropriate gift for your own child or relative. The only items not accepted are realistic looking toy weapons and food.

Toys for Tots programs typically take place in communities in which there is a Marine Corps Reserve Unit. If you would like to donate toys or even volunteer this holiday season, you can find your local Toys for Tots campaign information: here.

eMarine PX is an online retailer of U.S.M.C. specialties run by a group of Marine Corps Veterans. The idea to create eMarine PX came from our own experience with trying to find affordable Marine Corps products. As a member of the 26th Marines during the Vietnam War, we complained about not being able to find products for the 26th Marines and when we did find something they were extremely expensive to purchase. Hence was born. eMarine PX is the Official National PX for the 3rd Marine Division Association. eMarine PX products are sold exclusively online and through a printed catalog to be able to offer quality U.S.M.C. products at affordable prices.
