We are proud to announce our partnership with
For over 30 years, Starlite Propane has kept our local communities warm for the winter. While our customers may know we are always here for them, what they may not know is how devoted we are to our community and the health & happiness of our local children. We are a family owned and operated company who believes that charity starts at HOME. This year we are hoping to add a little JOY to holidays and help the less fortunate children in our area.
Did you know there are over 16 million American children living at or below the poverty level?
Along with the Long Island Propane Gas Association, Starlite Propane and other leaders in the propane industry have stepped up to become an OFFICIAL DROP OFF SITES for the Long Island Chapter of Toys for Tots!
Toys for Tots is a campaign that was started by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve in 1947. It collects and distributes toys to children whose families can’t afford to buy them Christmas gifts. The program supports children birth through 16 years. This year, they are most in need of toys for children birth-2 years and 10-15 years, although all donations are welcomed.
The mission of 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, logistic 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.
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.
How YOU can help:
By providing a brand new gift — something many children take for granted — each of us can help less fortunate children believe that someone cares and that the magic of the holiday season hasn’t passed them by.
