This year's drive is sponsored by Greenville Auto World and Two Men and a Truck.

Toys for Tots is a campaign run strictly through the US Marine Corps Reserve and the Toys for Tots Foundation. This year's local reserve is from the Maine and Sailors of Reserve Training Center and Site Support Stone Bay at Camp Lejeune. (Fox Co, 4th Tank Bn and Det 1 Trans Svc Co, CLB 25)

Each year, the US Marine Corps teams up with various businesses and organizations to provide toy drop-off locations for those wishing to make a donation. The Marine Corps Reserve, Marine Corps League and civilian volunteers collect all toy donations and distribute them to needy families in the area.
