Managerial support for Toys for Tots locally is provided by Douglass Community Services and Hannibal Parks & Recreation.
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community.
