The venerable Toys for Tots program, run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve since 1947, launched an initiative with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to provide toys, books, and other gifts to Afghan children who have been granted asylum in the U.S. The aim is to offer some comfort and hope to these young refugees as they adjust to their new lives.
