ABC 6 News is once again a proud sponsor of the southeast Minnesota Marine Toys for Tots Program. This year is the 75th Anniversary as the program has been delivering hope to area children since 1947.

The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute them to less fortunate children at Christmas.

In 2021, the program distributed 30,231 toys helping 8,060 children in 8 counties across southeast Minnesota.
