After 60 years of delivering holiday joy to millions of disadvantaged children, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation began the Toys for Tots Literacy Program in 2008. This new initiative will offer economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and to succeed in life by providing them direct access to books and educational resources that will enhance their ability to read and to communicate effectively.
