ROTC students help Toys-for-Tots

Toys-for-Tots Collection

The Marine Corps Reserves from I & I Cincinnati held a toy drive at Paul Brown Stadium in advance of the Bengals vs. Broncos football game.

Fans attending the game were encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy, or donate to the Marine Corps Reserves, Toys-For-Tots.

At the request of the Marines of Cincinnati, Holmes High School was requested to provide a MCJROTC Cadet to represent the Holmes Corps of Cadets.  Ar Ron Blair was selected based on his grades, participation, and desire.

Toys for Tots began in 1947 as the brain child of Marine Corps Reserve Major Bill Hendricks and his wife, Diane. She had crafted a few handmade dolls and asked Bill to deliver them to an agency that supports children in need.  When Bill reported back to his wife he could not find such an organization, she instructed him to “start one!”. Maj. Hendricks and the Marines in his reserve unit in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys in 1947.

As a personal friend and as a favor to Bill, Walt Disney designed the first Toys for Tots poster which included a miniature three-car train that was subsequently adopted as the Toys-for-Tots logo.

The Marine Toys-for-Tots Foundation raises funds, purchases toys, provides promotional and support materials, manages all funds raised and donated, solicits corporate support, educates the public, and handles day-to-day operations.

Presently, the Marine Toys-for-Tots Program distributes an average of 18 million toys to 7 million less fortunate children annually.
