(Baldwin, NY) The U.S. Marine Corps continued its long standing tradition of bringing holiday cheer to hundreds of children across Long Island and making sure that children in need have something under their Christmas trees this year. The 65th Annual Toys for Tots was held at the Coral House in Baldwin, and EAC Network was in attendance to show its support and to help ensure that no child goes without a toy this holiday season. The annual holiday kick-off included lots of food, fun, and festivities.

Lance Elder, President & CEO of EAC Network and Toy for Tots Honorary Vice-Chairman, was present to receive an award for his contribution and dedication to the annual toy drive. “I look forward to Toys for Tots every year,” says Lance. “The U.S. Marine Corps and the families who provide toys for those less fortunate are the true recipients of this award. Their commitment to ensuring the happiness of children in need during the holiday season is remarkable.”

Toys for Tots collection bins are in place throughout Long Island until the week of Christmas. The U.S. Marine Corps will then collect all of the new and unwrapped toys for distribution across Long Island and the New York metro area.
