Toys for Tots Activities

The following is sent at the request of Toys for Tots Coordinator, Rick Massey:

1.   15 Dec 2015 Toys for Tots event at Texas Roadhouse.  Have dinner on 12/15/15 at Texas Roadhouse and 10% of sales goes to Toys For Tots.  See you there at 1630.

2.  15 Dec 2015 Toys for Tots final screening at the Red Cliffs Mall. Time is 1730-2100.  Looking for some help. Last week's screening went really well. I expect this screening to be busy with about 40 applicants. Everyone had fun and enjoyed the previous week. Please send an e-mail to Rick Massey if you can make it. 
3.  19 Dec 2015 - Toys for Tots event at Ricardo's Restaurant located on Bluff St. Location where the Car Show was held. 10% of sales goes back to Toys For Tots.  Encourage everyone to come out and re-cap the Toys for Tots Drive plus enjoy some great food and most excellent company. Suggestions and input for next year's drive are encouraged and welcomed. I will be there at 1800.  Look forward to seeing everyone there. Bring your spouse, friends, family. Restaurant is roomy and has lots of seating area.

Thanks to everyone for their support and hard work. Toys are being collected, pulled and readied for deliveries. The end is in our sights. Carry on, Marines! Ooh-Rah. Semper Fi!

6 thru 10 Dec 2015 - Screening for Toys for Tots Recipients

I have received approval from the Red Cliffs Mall Manager Heather Cox, to conduct the Toys For Tots application process at the mall.  The screening will take place in the Red Cliffs Mall, north side near the food court, near Dillards. The mall will provide one table and four chairs.  As of this time, the following schedule will be initiated to accomplish our goals to screen all applicants to insure they are qualified. Toys For Tots applicants will be screened for the following three (3) items:

a. Proof of residency in the County - Rent/mortgage bill, utility, phone, etc.
b. Birth certificates on all children they are applying for. Birth certificates must be original or certified true copy.
c. Utah State Driver License or Utah State I.D.

As of this time, I have scheduled the following times with the Mall to conduct our Toys For Tots Screening Process:

Sunday -         12/06/15  1400-1730    2:00-5:30 pm

Tuesday -       12/08/15  1730-2100    5:30-9:00 pm

Thursday -      12/10/15  1730-2100    5:30-9:00 pm

One hour, two hour, or the whole shift would be great.
I will need help to screen the applicants for the above listed items. Marine Corps members or their spouses are more than welcome to help out.  Please send me an e-mail at ( and I will coordinate help for this screening endeavor.
