Holiday Happiness Appreciation

Just like our Toys for Tots donation bins, we are overflowing with joy, gratitude, and appreciation for you! Thank you for sharing happiness with children in the community and all of us at Bay Club, this holiday season.

As our donation bins start to fill up, we will be making our first round of deliveries to Toys for Tots–where families can pick up your donated gifts to wrap and place under their Christmas tree for their child.

Not to worry! There’s still time to donate and delight a child in our community. We’re accepting donations now through December 20th.

3 Easy Ways to Donate
– Bring a brand-new, unopened, unwrapped toy of your choice to the Club and place it in the Toys for Tots box.

– Don’t know what toy to buy? Pick up one of our gift-idea tags at the Club and shop for the toy listed on the tag.

– Simply fill out this form with your donation amount. All monetary donations will be used to purchase a brand-new toy that will be donated to Toys for Tots.

All monetary donations will be used to purchase a toy to be donated to Toys for Tots. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity. Donations are tax deductible. For toy purchases under $250 your store receipt is acceptable for IRS donation.
