As the holidays are upon us and planning for Christmas arrives, it’s also time to think about doing something special for children in need. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is underway giving local residents an opportunity to purchase a toy for a boy and girl outside their family.

Toys for Tots started more than 60 years ago when Maj. Bill Hendricks, USMCR, and a group of Marine reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed more than 5,000 toys to needy children. Hendricks’ idea caught on and was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots the following year and expanded it into a nationwide program.

In 1995, the Secretary of Defense approved Toys for Tots as an official activity of the U.S. Marine Corps and an official mission of the Marine Corps Reserve. Today, Toys for Tots is the Marine Corps’ premier community action program and one of the nation’s flagship Christmas charitable causes.

Toys for Tots is the only charitable endeavor within the Department of Defense which reaches outside the military establishment to give something back to thecommunities. Toys for Tots has enjoyed over a half century of success because of the support of millions of caring Americans, local communities, and corporate America plus the dedication and hard work of thousands of U.S. Marines.

Toys for Tots is a program which brings all elements of a community together in a common cause for three months each year. The shiny new toy at Christmas lets these youngsters know that someone cares. Area Toys for Tots coordinator Kelly Wilson is in charge of finding enough money and toys to fulfill toy requests for children in the 18 counties throughout Metro Atlanta. Kelly can be reached at 678-887-5179.

Toys for Tots collects only new toys. Organizers ask that toys brought to drop-off points be unwrapped so they can be sorted and given to the right child. Toys are to be appropriate for children from birth to 12 years.

Several East Cobb area drop-off spots are listed below. For a complete list, visit www.northatlanta.toysfortots.org.

  • America’s Thrift Store, 2949 Canton Road
  • AT&T, 4250 Roswell Road, Suite 300

  • David Douglas Diamond & Jewelry, 3605 Sandy Plains Road, Suite 260

By Nicole Mason, Community Outreach Chair, East Cobb County Council of PTAs

As the holidays approach, we begin to look around us and see just how fortunate we are. We see first hand just how much we have to be thankful for.

From little things, such as giving our friends and family the gifts they desire, to necessities such as providing food and warmth for our families.

Social media inundates us with all things “Holiday” prompting us to give more thought to the things we desire or what we desire for the loved ones around us.

Cobb County has 45 listed Title 1 schools and within that Title 1 community there are approximately 1,030 homeless children who during this “Joyful,” “Happy,” “Wonderful” season worry about where their next meal may come from. Title 1 is defined as “provides financial assistance to local educational agencies and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families…in other words, free and reduced lunch.”

Homelessness is defined by the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act to include, “children who may have a primary nighttime facility but said facility is not deemed appropriate for sleeping accommodations, children who are living in hotels, emergency or transitional shelter, cars or public space.”

If we for just a moment put ourselves in these families’ shoes, would we want compassion to be shown to us and our children? Would we want a helping hand to meet the needs we as parents could not fulfill for whatever reason? Would we want someone to show us the goodness and kindness of the human spirit just because it’s the right thing to do?

This season our community has an amazing opportunity to get involved this holiday season by simply asking this one question, “What is the need that I can help meet?”

There are many organizations hosting giving opportunities. Many local churches offer programs and ministries that you can be active in. MUST Ministries, Operation Christmas Child, and your local church food pantry are just a few of the places where you can be impactful. Some Title 1 schools also have their own food pantries and take donations all year.

Did you know that every county school also employs a social worker? That social worker can provide an in depth awareness of the needs of its school population and how you can help.

Please consider offering your help now and when the holidays are over. Student poverty and homelessness are continual issues that are not going away anytime soon. The next generation is our future and our voice.

Let’s help them by showing kindness, generosity and graciousness to those who might be in need.

“Generosity isn’t just a money thing, its a heart thing.”—Dave Ramsey

(Nicole Mason serves as Community Outreach Chair for the East Cobb County Council of PTAs. She resides in the Tally Green subdivision with her husband Sam and two children, Alexander and Gabrielle, who are students at Mt. Bethel Elementary where she also volunteers as Community Outreach Chair and Sister School Coordinator.)

Cobb Christmas, Inc., staffed 100% by volunteers, provides 3 toys to each child in need. Gifts are provided to the children ages infant through fifteen. A box of food is provided when available. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, Cobb Christmas is able to spread and keep alive the true spirit of Christmas—not to just their clients, but also to their donors and volunteers.

For one week each December you can actually see, hear, and touch Cobb Christmas during the Annual Distribution.

From December 14- 17, donations and purchases of over 16,000 toys are delivered to Cobb County’s Jim Miller Park and over 400 volunteers sort and distribute these toys to approximately 1,000+ families.

Cobb Christmas partners with Cobb County Department of Transportation and Cobb Community Transit (CCT) to create the county’s most unique and memorable holidayprogram, Stuff-A-Bus. Think of Stuff-A-Bus as the opposite of Santa’s sleigh, Santa uses his sleigh to deliver gifts and Cobb Christmas makes a CCT bus our sleigh for collecting gifts.

The week prior to Cobb Christmas’ Annual Distribution, a CCT bus travels through the county to Stuff-A-Bus host sites gathering donations of food and toys. Host sites can be businesses, schools and other entities that have organized toy and food drives.

This program would not be successful without the help of local businesses, schools, and other organizations that serve as host sites for Stuff-A-Bus. Volunteers at these locations organize food and toy drives and begin promoting and collecting in November. A Cobb Christmas representative schedules a date and time for the bus to make a stop at their location to collect the items which have been donated.

All donations are stored and transported to Jim Miller Park—the Cobb Christmas distribution site—during distribution week.

Individuals are encouraged to drop off donations at any of the “Stuff-A-Bus” scheduled stops. To find a stop near you, look at the Stuff-A-Bus schedule cobbchristmas.net/stuff-a-bus.

E-mail cobbchristmasinc@gmail.com if you would like more information on becoming a Stuff-A-Bus host site.
