The Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program began in 1947 and grew through the support of celebrities like Walt Disney. Herb DeGroft, USMC Ret., will discuss the origin and growth of the holiday giving program. Admission is free, but guests are asked to bring a new toy to support this year’s Toys for Tots drive.
