Savannah Jaycees Present Check and Toy Donations to Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

(SAVANNAH, GA) Members of the Savannah Jaycees presented $200 and a box full of toys to Staff Sergeant Riddle, the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Coordinator. The donations were collected at the Jaycees’ annual Tacky Christmas Sweater Party.

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve 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 less fortunate children in the Bryan, Chatham and Effingham Counties in Georgia, and Beaufort and Jasper Counties in South Carolina.

Staff Sergeant Riddle, U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Coordinator, said, “I am extremely honored the Jaycees have chosen the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots as the recipient of their annual holiday charity event. It means a great deal to our staff and all involved that the Jaycees have stepped up to help us.”

“We are all very grateful at the community support we received at our party. These donations will go to children who deserve a little Christmas cheer this time of the year,” said Cheryl Lawrence, president-elect of the Savannah Jaycees. “I hope this can serve as another example of who the Savannah Jaycees are, what our mission is and what work we strive to do in the the Savannah community.”
