Burns Family Dentistry and Toys For Tots

We are excited to announce, Burns Family Dentistry donated 150 children’s toothbrushes to our local chapter of Toys for Tots which will be given in addition to the toys in hopes to maintain and promote healthy smiles.

Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserves which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. The program was founded in 1947 by reservist Major Bill Hendricks.

The mission of the program “is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”

The stated goal is to “deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.”
