Sheriff's Office, Marine Reserves Kick off Annual 'Toys for Tots' Campaign

Sheriff's deputies will be joined by current and former Marines at Wal-Marts in Eldersburg, Westminster and Hampstead on Nov. 23 to collect new, unwrapped gifts.

The Carroll County Sheriff’s Office has partnered with the United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Foundation to collect new, unwrapped toys from now until Christmas for less fortunate children in the community.

The United States Marine Corps Reserve has established relationships with local social welfare agencies, churches and other local community agencies which have identified children in the community who would benefit from the program.

In Carroll County, residents may drop off any new, packaged, unwrapped toys in collection boxes located inside the entrance at any one of the six public library branches, library headquarters in New Windsor, and the Carroll County Office Building or Sheriff’s Office in Westminster. Used toys will not be accepted.

Additionally, Sheriff’s Deputies will be joined by current and former Marines at Wal-Marts located in Eldersburg, Westminster and Hampstead on Friday, Nov. 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to collect new, unwrapped toys from shoppers wishing to make a donation.

Toys are needed for children of all ages. Toy donations will be accepted through Monday, Dec. 17.

Master Deputy McMillen, of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office, also a former Marine, is coordinating this annual charity toy drive, in support of the Toys for Tots Foundation. For more information please contact Master Deputy McMillen at 443-375-6331 or cmcmillen@ccg.carr.org or visit the Toys for Tots Foundation website at www.toysfortots.org.
