"Semper Fidelis" or better known "Semper Fi" has been the motto for the US Marine Corps for nearly 130 years. When we hear it, we think of a battle cry. But the term "Always Faithful" takes on a different meaning when it comes to Marines and Toys. Since 1947 US Marines both Reservist and Active duty have been collecting toys for less fortunate children throughout the country. What started with a small doll made by the wife of a USCR Major has turned into a program that has collected more than 98 million toys.
Here in Haywood County more than 3000 toys were collected last year putting smiles on the faces of hundreds of children and their parents.
I think we can do even BETTER!!!! So Come On Western North Carolina and all our amazing visitors here to enjoy our Fall Season.... Its time to KICK OFF THE 2012 TOYS FOR TOTS.
