Giant Food Stores Collecting Toys for Tots

Toys will be collected at neighborhood Giant locations.

The grocery store chain Giant Food has partnered with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to collect toys for underprivileged children at area stores.

There is one Giant grocer in Fairfax City. Drop by Giant at 11200 Fairfax Boulevard (corner of Fairfax Blvd and Jermantown Rd) to participate.

Giant, based in Landover, Md., also donated $25,000 last week to support children in need across the mid-Atlantic region. Toys will be collected at 170 Giant stores throughout the holiday season.

This year marks the second year of a partnership between the two organizations.

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not-for-profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Now in its 65th year, Toys for Tots provides gifts to less fortunate children during the Christmas season.
