Toys for Tots of Lebanon, PA Utilizes U-Haul

Jan 12, 2015

In 1947, Major Bill Hendricks gathered some Marines to collect 5,000 toys from the community for the children. The mission of collecting toys and distributing them to children of the communities where they are collected has changed very little through the years. Toys for Tots have distributed over 469 million toys to over 216 million children over the span of the charity. Toys for Tots have earned a lot of praise from Forbes, Better Business Bureau Wise Giving Alliance, Reader’s Digest, and many more.

One of the many chapters across the country is Toys for Tots in Lebanon, PA which makes it their mission to make a joyous Christmas for the boys and girls in their town. Each year they Rent a U-Haul Truck for their deliveries. These two gentleman are Retired US Marines and coordinators for the Lebanon Toys for Tots campaign.

Here are a few images from their day of deliveries:
