Christmas in the Park, the United States Marine Corps Reserves, and the Santa Clara County Toys For Tots Committee team up every year during the Holidays for the Toys For Tots program.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots program is to collect, new unwrapped toys during the Holiday Season each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.
With a centralized kiosk in the middle of Christmas in the Park, the event serves as a major drop-off point for toy donations during the Holiday Season. All toys dropped off at Christmas in the Park go directly back to our community.
Each year, on the third Saturday of Christmas in the Park, “Walmart's Super Saturday” is held. This is an all-day drop-off and collection of toys for the program. With the community in full support of the program, an entire Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) bus is filled with new unwrapped toys for the San Jose community.
