CIL would like to thank the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program, for all they do to make kids dreams come true for the holidays!
CIL has been partnered with this fantastic group for many years now. However, this year they (and Major Dennis Wait) were exceptional! They worked with the CIL to provide toys for 24 families with disabilities and that totaled 57 kids! By the time CIL staff had picked out the allowed number of gifts for each child and the family, plus 5 bikes, there were so many bags of toys, we were not sure how we would get it all back to the CIL. Major Wait was amazing and said they could deliver them for us! They helped us load everything into their trailer, brought it all to the CIL and then unloaded it as well!
We cannot thank them enough for making this wonderful process so painless and beneficial to so many!!! Thank you also to our generous CIL staff members who were able to take time out of their day to play Santa for our families in need!
