TOY DROP-OFF LOCATIONS
18TH ANNUAL TOY DRIVE BENEFITTING TOYS FOR TOTS & LITTLE SMILES
This year’s parade marks the 19th anniversary of the partnership between the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County and the U.S. Marine Reserves Toys for Tots organization. The MIAPBC is proud to have collected tens of thousands of new, unwrapped gifts for local children in need.
In an effort to increase our overall reach to children and families in need this holiday season, we are proud to announce that we have joined forces for our land-base toy drive with Little Smiles, a local children's charity.Our water-based toy drive during the parade will continue to benefit our longtime partners, Toys for Tots.
A “toy fleet” of boats from Tow Boat, Sea Tow, and other volunteers traveling along the parade route will make convenient dockside pickups during the parade. Just wave a flashlight when you see a boat with a flashing amber beacon and/or Toys for Tots signage. The uniformed Marines and volunteers will pull right up to your dock to collect donations. Whether you are heading to a parade viewing party, or planning your own, don’t forget to bring a new, unwrapped gift!
In the weeks before and after the parade there will be several Little Smiles boxes located at businesses throughout the community to help make toy donations more convenient. Please print and fill out the form below if you are interested in having a box at your business.
Boxes will be delivered the week of November 12.
