Tots for Toys Returns to Hudson Valley (Aired on December 5, 2021)

The story of Toys for Tots in the Hudson Valley is provided in this radio program by Mike Binns (Ulster County Coordinator), Marine sergeant Maryabelo Ganal, Marine Captain George Matthews, and PAMAL radio host Randy Turner (who is also part of the RadioRotary team). Toys for Tots was started in 1947 to provide toys for children in need—distributing 5,000 toys in that first year. Every holiday season since it has continued to be one of the great charities that everyone loves, providing presents for children who might otherwise go without holiday gifts. Local businesses, such as Adams Fairacre Farms and have provided bins for collecting toys and volunteers to provide cash for more and to help the local Marine Corps Reserve deliver the toys.
