Toys For Tots
Update: November 16, 2018. * We reached 1 million dollars in collections this year! What an amazing accomplishment by our cadets and the Lilburn community helping us reach this goal. Just think of all the families that have benefited from the annual Parkview MCJROTC Toys for Tots drive.
This is our biggest service project of the year by far. Parkview MCJROTC Toys for Tots drive begins the weekend before Thanksgiving and continues each weekend until Winter break. Traditionally we are located at the Lilburn Walmart on Lawrenceville Highway, the Kroger on Rockbridge, the Rockbridge Walmart and the Duluth Walmart. We collect cash donations and toys. The weekend of Winter break cadets that worked a Toys for Tots detail are invited to go shopping for gifts that are loaded on an eighteen wheeler truck then delivered to the Toys for Tots distribution center. These presents will be delivered to local families that registered with the United Way.
Should you be interested in a Toys for Tots collection box at your place of employment let us know so we can make arrangements to help make that happen.
Parkview MCJROTC is one of the largest non-corporate contributors to Toys for Tots in the local area. We generally raise between $60,000 and $80,000 annually and 100% of that goes towards holiday presents for local children in need.
MCJROTC family members, this commitment calls for chaperones working 2-hour shifts Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM; totaling 64 adults each weekend, if everyone works one shift. This simply cannot happen without you. Please use the link above for SignUp.com and pick your volunteer spot.
