The New Hampshire Liquor Commission (NHLC) has partnered again with the United States Marine Corps Reserve "Toys for Tots" Program. The New Hampshire Liquor Commission invites the public to bring donations of unwrapped toys to any of the 77 New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlets now through December 15.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys each year and distributes them as Christmas and holiday gifts to less fortunate children across the United States. With each toy that is given, the Marine Corps Reserve also delivers a message of hope to encourage children to become responsible, productive and patriotic citizens.
"We are thrilled that the New Hampshire Liquor Commission will be partnering with us again this holiday season," said Daniel Sierra, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps and New Hampshire Toys for Tots program coordinator. "The commitment and support of local businesses and organizations is crucial to the Toys for Tots program, and we truly appreciate the ongoing commitment of the New Hampshire Liquor Commission."
"Many New Hampshire families continue to struggle financially, and the holiday season can be particularly difficult," said Joseph W. Mollica, Chairman, New Hampshire Liquor Commission. "We are honored to help the Marine Corps Reserve bring a bit of holiday joy to the lives of New Hampshire children who are less fortunate, and we hope people will join us in supporting this wonderful program by donating new, unused toys at select New Hampshire Liquor and Wine Outlet stores."
The Toys for Tots Program receives the greatest number of holiday toy requests for infants and children ages 10 and older. The NHLC urges the public to consider donating new, unwrapped items such as infant toys, sporting equipment and handheld electronic games this holiday season. Stuffed animals and clothing are not accepted. On select days in select stores, a United States Marine will be on hand and will present customers who donate a new unwrapped toy at that time with a coupon good for 10% off of their New Hampshire Liquor & Wine Outlet purchases through December 31, 2013.
