Organization/Program Description

2018 Toys for Tots Gift Giving Program
The mission of Tex Reynolds' Toys for Tots is to repair, rehabilitate and rejuvenate donated toys and distribute them to needy children in Racine County so that no one is without gifts at Christmas.  Families must meet certain qualifications in order to register for gifts.  Eligible children then receive a main gift package, along with games, puzzles, books, dolls, cars, etc. plus a family (larger) gift.  At registration, families are given a date to pick up their gifts from us.  Our gifts are for babies and children up to age 12.
