Murphy's and the Toys for Tots Marines

Press release submitted by Nancy Flynn Youngkin BCT-Dec. 10, 2018 – A Toys for Tots tradition returns to Murphy’s Market this Sunday, December 16 when members of the 3rd Battalion, 14th Marines and volunteers will be there from 2-4pm to collect toys and donations that will help area families in need. For seven years the Marines enjoyed coming to Medford and Medford Lakes annual events and sincerely appreciated the generosity of our residents. But for the last few years changes in leadership and demands on the Marines limited activity away from their military duties. Thankfully this year the Marines are back, and hope you are able to help with a new, unwrapped toy or activity. Desirable items include anything suitable for boys and girls ages 0-13, and please understand that only new toys can be collected due to federal safety regulations dating back to the 1970s. And Toys for Tots cannot accept weapons of any kind. If you have any questions, please email me at, or call 609-744-5448 or call Murphy’s Market at 609-654-8422. I got involved with Toys for Tots in 2002 because I sincerely believe that some things in a child’s life ought to be unconditional. A gift to open during the holidays is one of them. For the child who isn't sure they will be remembered during the holidays, your donation means more than you know. Thank you for your support
