Toys for Tots is a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve program which collects new, unwrapped toys for needy children from October through December. While the program is national, the toys donated in your community are redistributed locally. Your donation of a new toy can make the holidays special for a child in your own neighborhood.
President Lincoln’s Cottage is a proud participant in the Toys for Tots program. The Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center at President Lincoln’s Cottage is a Toys for Tots drop-off location. You may purchase new toys at the Museum Store in the Visitor Education Center or bring a new, unwrapped toy with you. Place your toy donation in the designated donation box, located in the atrium of the Visitor Education Center.
Toy donations will be collected at President Lincoln’s Cottage through the end of December 2009.
The Robert H. Smith Visitor Education Center is open Monday-Saturday from 9:30am-4:30pm and on Sundays from 11:30am-5:30pm.
