- Toys for Tots Marathon Weekend A Success!

The annual Toys for Tots Marathon Weekend at Riverpark, held from November 30th - December 2nd, proved to be a success as over 8,800 toys and $37,000 in monetary donations were collected! These numbers far surpass last years' total and it could not be made possible without the amazing generosity of thousands in the Valley who did not let a little rain damper their giving spirit. To each person and family that donated, we THANK YOU!! This brings the U.S. Marine Corps closer to their goal of collecting 112,000 toys!

We would also like to thank all of our fantastic volunteer groups that came out and braved the very wet and rainy weather to help the Marines collect and count toys! They include: San Joaquin Valley College, Walgreens, ACG Construction, Principal Financial Group, Pelco by Schneider Electric, Wells Fargo, Assisteens, Aetna, FedEx Ground, Bank of America, US Script, Cali Heat, our very own United Way staff and much more. And of course, a huge Thank You goes out to the wonderful Marines for their tireless efforts and dedication to Toys for Tots!!

Even though many toys were collected this weekend, there is still a lot of toys needed to exceed the goal of giving 112,000 needy children a joyous Christmas. One way in which YOU can help is hosting a Toys for Tots toy drive at your business, organization or school! Or drop off a new, unwrapped toy at any of the following locations. You may also donate a monetary contribution, by sending check or cash to: United Way of Fresno County,  (c/o Toys for Tots), 4949 E. Kings Canyon Rd. , Fresno, CA 93727

You can also volunteer a few hours to help sort and collect toys at the warehouse! For more information, please visit our Toys for Tots webpage. To find out out you can receive toys for your children, please dial 2-1-1. To view photos from Marathon Weekend, please check out our facebook album.
