Toys For Tots To Distribute Toys During COVID-19 Outbreak

The Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots isn’t waiting for the holidays to distribute toys it collects to needy families this year with families under coronavirus stay-at-home orders. The Marine Corps Reserve-run program is working with Alexandria, Virginia-based Good360 to make sure the toys, books, and games it collects get to charities best-suited to distribute them. The two organizations expect to distribute 2 million items across the country beginning this week.

The Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots isn’t waiting for the holidays to distribute toys it collects for needy families this year. It is working with Alexandria, Va.-based Good360 to get items out

According to wtop.com, “Good360, founded in 1983, works with dozens of retailers and merchants to distribute excess inventory through its nonprofit network of 90,000 charities across the U.S. each year. It said demand right now is higher than ever. Since the coronavirus outbreak, Good360 has been working with companies to distribute a variety of items, such as personal protective equipment, face masks, baby food, and cleaning supplies, to charities and front-line health care organizations.”

As per wtop.com, “Toys for Tots said it collects an average of 18 million toys that it distributes to 7 million children each holiday season, across all 50 states, through its own distribution network of more than 800 local communities. But it does not have a network in place outside of the holiday season because Marines are training, deploying and serving the nation’s military call. Hasbro, Lego, Disney, Funko, Five Below and Build-A-Bear are among the companies that have donated many of the 2 million items to be distributed.”
