like to thank you for your most generous contribution to the
Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Such support is most
helpful in enabling the Marine Corps to meet the significant
of providing joy and hope to millions of our nation’s neediest
children during the Christmas holiday season.
The Marine Corps fulfilled the Christmas holiday dreams of over
5.7 million needy children in 2003. That’s a lot of children.
But there are still many that we missed. We believe that with
the support of such concerned citizens as you we may meet the
of an even greater number of children this year.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation provided no goods, services
or benefits in consideration for your contribution. This foundation
is recognized by the IRS as a tax-exempt public charity under section
501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions of cash
to the Foundation are deductible on your federal income tax return
to the extent provided by federal income tax regulations. Please

On behalf of the Foundation staff, the U.S. Marine Corps, and
the many needy children of this nation who will experience the
simple joy of Christmas holiday season, I commend you for your
thoughtfulness and generosity. Best wishes for a healthy, safe
and happy new year.
