The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.

From the Cochran Car Show's website:

We are hoping to collect as many toys as possible for needy families so any money donations will also be used to purchase toys.

All toys and donations will remain in the community.
