WHO: The Marine Toys-for-Tots Foundation began in 1947, when Major Bill Hendricks, USCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children.  The idea came form Bill’s wife, Diane.  In the fall of 1947, Diane crafted a homemade doll and asked Bill to deliver the doll to an organization, which would give it to a needy child at Christmas.  When Bill determined that no agency existed, Diane told Bill that he should start one.  He did.  The 1947 pilot project was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign. Today there are two Marine Corps reserve centers in Los Angeles County.  Pasadena to the North and Bell to the South.  Both share the responsibilities of ensuring every child gets some kind of Christmas.
