Legislator Dunne Encourages all to Donate to Toys for Tots

Nassau County Legislator Dennis Dunne, Sr., joined with the United Stated Marine Corps 2nd Battalion to make his 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.

“As a former marine and former vice chair of the Marines Toys for Tots Program, I am particularly excited about this year’s Toys for Tots initiative.  I have been donating for years, and I will never tire of seeing the big smiles that the toys bring to the children’s faces.  This is a very worthy cause and I encourage all to make a donation or volunteer,” said Legislator Dunne. 

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

Happy Holidays!
