ABC 6 News is once again a proud sponsor of the southeast Minnesota Marine Toys for Tots Program. 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.

2022 was a record-breaking year! Marine Toys for Tots distributed an unprecedented 24.4 million toys, books, and games to 9.9 million disadvantaged children with the help of 50,000+ Volunteers. We are grateful for everyone who provided hope and joy in 2022!
