Toys for Tots Program
NATIVE AMERICAN PROGRAM
Through the assistance of the Toys for Tots Native American Program, the White Mountain Apache Police Department has been able to distribute toys to approximately 4,000 Apache children through the years. The Police Department works under the direction of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation in support of the United States Marine Corps.
The Toys for Tots Native American Program is unique in that it is the only Toys for Tots Program whose primary mission to move toys out of the toy collection area, and reach out to disadvantaged Native American children. This involved the collection of toys, primarily in California; the transportation of the toys to various Native American Reservations, primarily in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Nevada; and the distribution of toys, with the assistance of the various Reservation Police Departments, to Native American Children.
