First and foremost thank you for your help and consideration with the 2020 Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Drive which officially came to an end this week. I would like to take this time to go over how it went. Collectively we were able to donate over 1,000 new and unwrapped toys and gifts for King and Snohomish County chapters. These donations will help give a Christmas to over 500 less fortunate children in our communities this Holiday Season.
We would also like to thank our partners at the Port which include; Military Veterans at the Port of Seattle, AV Project Management, Marine Maintenance and Pier 69 for their help and contributions during this drive. As previously mentioned, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the need is much greater than previous years and your contributions have helped relieve the stress of the area coordinators. We look forward to working together during the next holiday season to continue supporting our community. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you all.
