Legislator Ford Encourages all to Donate to Toys for Tots

Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford joined with the United Stated Marine Corps 2nd Battalion to make her annual toy donation to the Marine Toys for Tots Program.  Under the direction of Major Chuck Kilbride, this year marks the 60th year that the Toys for Tots Program has collected and distributed toys to needy children nationwide.  In 2006, the Marines and volunteers distributed over 19.2 million toys to 7.6 million needy children.

“I look forward to participating in the Toys for Tots Program every year so that I can bring a smile to at least one child’s face on Christmas.  I encourage all to make a donation or volunteer for this very worthy cause,” said Legislator Ford. 

Please visit to find a donation location near you, or feel free to drop off a toy to Legislator Ford’s office and she will make sure that it is donated for you.

Happy Holidays!
