Drop Off Toys For Tots

The Delaware Natural Resources Police have teamed up with the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign to provide toys for underserved children in the local community. This long-running U.S. Marine Corps Reserve progam collects new, unwrapped toys each year and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the local community.
