DOC and Mass. National Guard help make Toys for Tots a Total Success 2012
MILFORD (Dec. 14, 2012)—The Massachusetts Department of Correction (DOC), along with the Massachusetts National Guard, has a long history of generously supporting the United States Marine Corps Reserves in its annual Toys for Tots drive. For 65 years, this toy drive has made the holidays happier for thousands of children.
The 2012 Toys for Tots Drive was a total success, judging from the looks of the truck filled with thousands of presents donated by DOC staff and the Mass. National Guard.
“Because of the big hearts of DOC employees, bins in our facilities overflowed with trucks, games, stuffed animals and dolls,” said Commissioner Spencer.
“I want to thank everyone in the Mass. National Guard who participated in this year’s toy drive,” said Colonel Bethoney.
