Toys for Tots
Councilmember Chris Cate’s Toys for Tots Pancake Breakfast
3rd Annual Toys for Tots event expected to yield 400 toys for military families
On Saturday, December 16, 2017, Councilmember Chris Cate will trade in his suit and tie for gloves and an apron to serve flapjacks at his 3rd Annual Pancake Breakfast. All proceeds from the pancake breakfast will benefit the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
From 8:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., the Mira Mesa Senior Center will welcome children, families, senior citizens, and Santa for a free pancake breakfast. In return, each guest is encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy. Last year, more than 350 toys were collected for Toys for Tots.
Founded in the 1980’s, Toys for Tots delivers, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens. To date, the Marine Toys for Tots Program has distributed over 512 million toys to over 237 million less fortunate children.
