About Toys for Tots:
Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, which donates toys to children whoseparents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major William L. Hendricks. Toys For Tots began as a Los Angelescharitable effort in 1947. Hendricks was inspired by his wife Diane when she tried to donate a doll to a needy child but could find no organization to do so. At her suggestion he gathered a group of local Marine reservists, including Lieutenant Colonel John Hampton, who coordinated and collected some 5,000 toys for local children that year from collection bins placed outside of Warner Bros. movie theaters. Their efforts were so successful that, in 1948, Toys For Tots was launched as a national campaign. Hendricks used his position as director of Public Relations for Warner Brothers Studio to enlist celebrity support, as well as have Walt Disney Studios design the red toy train logo.
