Spencer Nichols, a local Edward Jones financial advisor, is supporting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program by using his office as a drop-off location for this year's toy drive.
Local residents may help needy children in the area by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy to the office, 409 Becker Drive in Roanoke Rapids, during regular business hours through December 14. Monetary gifts cannot be accepted.
"With the holiday season around the corner, we are all getting ready for the festivities," Nichols said. "And as this is the season of giving, now is a great time to remember the less fortunate in our community."
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not-for-profit public charity which was created at the behest of the U. S. Marine Corps in 1991.
The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is to assist the U. S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas.
