Bluewater’s Toys for Tots Drive
This season is all about gratitude. Gratitude for family, friends, and all the goodness of the holiday season. Our 2019 Toys for Tots Drive has brought so many people together to aid the cause and give toys to those less fortunate. From Bluewater employees, guests, friends, and locals – our community has made this year’s Toys for Tots drive one of the best, yet!
If you didn’t get a chance to participate with us this year, we look forward to you joining us in 2020.
We’re looking forward to making next year’s Toys for Tots drive, and each thereafter, bigger and better than the one before.
Being a community surrounded by two Marine Corps Bases – We proudly support the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
About the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
The 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 and supplemented local campaigns with tens of millions of toys valued at hundreds of millions of dollars.

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. This assistance includes supporting the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program by raising funds to provide toys to supplement the collections of local Toys for Tots campaigns, to provide promotional, and support material, and defray the costs of conducting annual Toys for Tots campaigns. Other Foundation support includes providing administrative, advisory, financial, logistical, and promotional support to local Toys for Tots Coordinators; managing funds raised and monies donated based on the use of Toys for Tots name or logo; providing other support the Marine Corps, as a federal agency, cannot provide; and conducting public education and information programs about Toys for Tots that call the general public to action in support of this patriotic community action program.
