Once again this year Gallagher Insurance & Real Estate has been designated as an official drop-off site for the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program and requests that donors bring unwrapped toys to 106 Spring St., in West Roxbury before Dec 21, 2012.
Donations may be made in memory of Lance Corporal Joseph Mclean III, a local resident who died in an accident while on Marine Corps duty in Hawaii.
The Toys for Tots program relies solely on donations and all work is done by unpaid volunteers. Through the years Marines have established close working relationships with community agencies such as Gallagher Insurance with Bob Gallagher. Community members then identify needy children in the community and play important roles in the toy distribution.
