GENEVA – Senator Pam Helming today announced that she is partnering with Marine Corps League Memorial Day Detachment No. 468 in Clyde to support the Toys for Tots program during the holiday season. Senator Helming’s District Office – located at 425 Exchange St. in Geneva – will serve as a collection point for new, unwrapped toys from now until Friday, Dec. 15. These gifts will benefit needy children throughout the Wayne-Finger Lakes region.
“As a member of a military family and a strong supporter of our veterans and service members, I am proud to partner with Marine Corps League Memorial Day Detachment No. 468 to support the wonderful Toys for Tots program. Many of us are fortunate to be able to share a happy, healthy holiday season with our families and children, but sadly, there are plenty of families in our region who cannot provide their children with a nice Christmas that every child should have. Toys for Tots helps create that magical moment on Christmas morning by giving families presents for their children. I thank the Memorial Day Detachment for their partnership in this special holiday tradition,” Senator Helming said.
“The Marine Corps League Toys for Toys program seeks to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate children and help them experience the joy of Christmas by gifting them with new toys that they would otherwise not receive because of their situations. We at Memorial Day Detachment have seen firsthand how the simple gesture of a special present can benefit our families and children throughout our region and leave an impact that lasts a lifetime. We thank Senator Helming not only for her support of this terrific program but also her continued support of our veterans and service members,” Memorial Day Detachment No. 468 Senior Vice Commandant David Brisbane.
