Accepting New and Unwrapped Toys

Members of the Marine Corps League accepting a toy donationThe Royal Gorge Marine Corps League Detachment is honored to participate in the Marine Corps Reserve Toys-For-Tots program, a cherished initiative that brings the joy of the holiday season to children in need within Fremont County, Colorado. Through the generous support of our community, we aim to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters, ensuring they experience the wonder and happiness of the holiday season.

We warmly invite the residents of Fremont County to join us in this noble cause. While the donation of new, unwrapped toys is the backbone of the Toys-For-Tots program, we also recognize the importance and impact of monetary contributions. Donated funds play a crucial role in our mission, allowing us to purchase additional gifts to fill any gaps that may exist in our collection, ensuring every child's holiday wish is fulfilled.

Checks can be made payable to Toys for Tots, and every dollar donated stays within our community to benefit the children of Fremont County.

Donation receptacles, attentively manned by dedicated members of the United States Marine Corps Reserve and Marine Corps League, are conveniently located throughout the community. These collection points are ready to accept your generous donations of toys and monetary gifts. In a unique twist, we also feature ammunition boxes stationed at various locations, designed to collect any loose or spare change you may wish to donate.

Supporting Local Kids In Need

Each year, over 100 children in Fremont County are registered to receive gifts through the Toys-For-Tots program. As the holiday season progresses, our organizers meticulously ensure that we have an accurate inventory of age-appropriate gifts for each child registered. This includes a special focus on often overlooked age groups, such as babies and infants, as well as ensuring we meet the specific needs of children in the 7-10 age range or any other demographic where shortages are identified.

We also emphasize the importance of supporting older children and teenagers, extending our reach to include gifts suitable for them. Our goal is to ensure that no child is forgotten and that every child in need receives a token of holiday cheer.

By contributing to the Toys-For-Tots program, whether through toy donations or financial support, you are making a significant difference in the lives of children in our community. Your generosity helps to spread joy, foster hope, and create cherished holiday memories for children and families facing difficult times.

For more information on how you can contribute, locations of donation receptacles, and further details on the impact of your donations, please contact our Toys-For-Tots program coordinator. Together, we can make this holiday season a little brighter for every child in Fremont County. Let's join hands in the spirit of giving and ensure that the magic of the holidays reaches every corner of our community.
