Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not-for-profit public charity created to assist the U.S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to the nearly 15 million economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. It is an incredible organization that makes millions of children very happy each holiday season.
In this edition of Greta Talk, we hear from Toys for Tots President/CEO Lieutenant General Peter Osman, who was also an infantry officer in the US Marine Corps for 37 years. Osman tells the On the Record host how Toys for Tots donates 18 million toys each year, helping make the Christmas of many children very special. Osman goes on to say, “In an ideal world, the child doesn’t know where the presents come from. He thinks that Santa has not forgotten him.” Because of heartwarming sentiments like this, Toys for Tots has had endless support from individuals and organizations across the country for the past 68 years, making it the incredible success it is. Toys for Tots has even received the help of First Lady Michelle Obama for the past 7 years!
