Toys For Tots Drive At Nationwide Arena A Success
The Columbus Blue Jackets teamed up with the US Marines and collected over 1300 toys and $685 in cash donations, which the Marines will use to purchase additional toys. The toy drive was from Nov. 16 – Dec. 8. The drive took place over four Columbus Blue Jackets' home games.

Over the 57 years of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, Marines have distributed more than 332.5 million toys to 158.7 million needy children. This charitable endeavor has made U.S. Marines the unchallenged leaders in looking after needy children at Christmas.

Over its lifespan, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has supplemented local toy collections with more than 55.5 million toys valued at more than $284 million; plus has provided promotion and support materials valued at over $3.2 million.
