Toys for Tots has been a Marine Corps Reserve project for 50 years. It began operating in Washington County in 1997, thanks to the Marine Corps League in Hagerstown.
"Last year, we collected 1,100 toys," said Glausier, commandant of the Marine Corps League Bulldog Detachment. "We decided to get involved because there was such a great need here."
