TOYS FOR TOTS
The YMCA began its partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program in 2001. That first year, the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis served 900 individuals. For the past 13 years, the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis has helped facilitate the Toys for Tots Event, and more than 25,000 youth have received Christmas assistance. The YMCA has reached out to more than 20 organizations to collaborate and collect toys and resources to provide a special holiday season for families in need.
The YMCA will host the 2014 Toy for Tots Event at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, Champions Pavilion on Saturday, December 20th and will serve more than 1,000 families this year.
