Toys For Tots Logo

Kick-off Toys Ahoy! by donating a toy!
November 16 – December 16, 2019
Donation box will be located in the Main Lobby.

In partnership with Toys for Tots, The Mariners’ Museum and Park is asking that Museum Members, guests, and staff take the opportunity to give a toy to a child in need.

Toys for Tots does not publish a list of appropriate toys to donate. If such a list were created, most would follow it, resulting in a limited selection of items to distribute in each community. Rather, we encourage you to consider what might be an appropriate gift for your own child/relative.

For questions, please contact Sara Weatherill at
(757) 591-7715.

Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will not be distributed.
