It’s hard to believe the holidays are fast approaching, but Navy Federal is getting into the spirit by gearing up for our annual Toys for Tots campaign, set to begin on Nov. 14, 2016!

Founded by the U.S. Marine Corps in 1947, Toys for Tots collects new toys for less fortunate children in over 700 communities nationwide. Toys for Tots delivers messages of hope to young recipients along with their gifts, and allows them to experience the joy of Christmas thanks to others’ generosity.

Navy Federal’s participation in Toys for Tots has continued to grow over the years. In 2015, our Pensacola campus alone donated more than 1,500 gifts. “We have employees who begin their Toys for Tots planning in the spring,” said Donald Belcher, Navy Federal training supervisor. “This effort is the highlight of the Christmas season for some of our team members.”

We’re proud to be an official collection site and corporate sponsor again in 2016, and invite our members and employees to join us in spreading cheer.

Our Toys for Tots campaign runs from Nov. 14 – 30, 2016. Navy Federal employees and members may participate in two different ways:

  • Drop off a new, unwrapped toy at one of our participating branches. Or,
  • If you’d like to participate but are unable to pick up a toy, you can also donate using the Member-to-Member transfer feature via Navy Federal Online or on our mobile app by searching for the following:
