DynCorp International employees from the Falls Church, Va., Alexandria, Va. and Fort Worth, Texas offices are supporting the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation this holiday season. Each office will be collecting unwrapped toys to benefit less fortunate children and families this year.
Also planned for the Fort Worth, Texas, location a special delivery will take place on December 3. After gifts are delivered to the office by employees, a special motorcycle and car rally will travel in convoy formation to the local Marine Corps Reserve office to deliver the holiday cheer.
In last year’s Texas rally, the convoy was accompanied by a police escort and delivered more than $3,500 in gifts.

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity is the fundraising, funding and support organization for the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation was created at the behest of the U. S. Marine Corps and provides support in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding with the Commander, Marine Forces Reserve, who directs the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. The Foundation has supported Toys for Tots since 1991.
The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots 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 objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
