"Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful," is the motto of the United States Marine Corps, and none are more faithful, generous, and caring than our Marines. Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, and is yet another way these men and women serve our country. Founded in 1947, the program distributes toys to children less fortunate, who otherwise might not receive a toy for Christmas. To date, well over five hundred million toys have been distributed to delighted children across the country.
Last year, the DFW Toys for Tots Motorcycle Run was not dampened by the cold temps and intermittent rain. Faithful Marines, volunteers, and loyal motorcyclist lined the streets with their toys and donations, ready to ride for a worthy cause.
On Saturday, December 1st, please join the "Few and the Proud" at Family Power Sports in McKinney at 2110 N. Cenntral Expressway, either to join in the 47.1 mile motorcycle ride or just to support the program with new and unwrapped toys or a cash donations.
