GREENVILLE — The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Texas and the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots are working together to collect applications and distribute more than 1,500 toys to children across Hunt County this holiday season.

It is requested that no children are to be brought during application process or pick up days.

Toys for Tots annually collects and distributes toys in the communities where a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located to help less fortunate children experience the joy of Christmas.

“It is a privilege to assist the Marine Corps Toys for Tots as a distribution point again this holiday season,” said Jenny Krueger, Chief Professional Officer of Northeast Texas. “We were able to serve over 500 children of Hunt County last year, due to the generosity of L-3 and the community at large, and we look forward to assisting the children that need it the most this year.”
