Coast Guard in Grand Haven supports Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. – The U.S. Coast Guard in Grand Haven is supporting the U.S. Marine Corps’s local Toys for Tots campaign Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Sector Field Office, located at 650 Harbor Dr., adjacent to Escanaba Park.

The Tri-Cities public is invited to come and fill up the boat with new, wrapped toys to be distributed to local less fortunate children who would otherwise not receive any gifts for Christmas. On display at the Coast Guard office will be a 25 foot Response Boat Small (RB-S).

Uniformed Coast Guard and Marine Corps personnel will be present to meet and greet the public and accept the donated toys.

Grand Haven Coast Guard’s intent is to provide military personnel support to the Marine Corps’s Toys for Tots campaign. The hope is Coast Guard participation will add traction to the local citizen’s volunteerism/giving spirit. More importantly, it as a way to support children who would otherwise not receive a gift this Christmas.
