Toys for Tots Program
The Centura staff is supporting the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. This worthy program collects new, unused toys for underprivileged children. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future. In return for bringing a new toy, the Centura staff will enjoy wearing jeans on Thursday, December 14th.
