Our offices are located in Frazer and Kennett Square. We are a volunteer-based organization with only four part-time employees and over 120 active volunteers. Volunteers assist as personal clothing stylists, clothing and closet maintenance, office support, fundraising, special events, workshops, interpreting Spanish, and more.

Toys for Tots, an IRS recognized 501©(3) nonprofit, has distributed 584 million toys since 1946, supporting 265 million children. Local campaigns are conducted annually in over 800 communities covering all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. GVFHRA collects new, unwrapped toys every December during our Silent Auction for Toys for Tots, which are accepted at the event by the Marines.

Local toy collection campaigns begin in October and last until mid to late December.  Toy distribution also takes place mid to late December.  Members of the community drop new, unwrapped toys in collection boxes positioned in local businesses.  Coordinators pick up these toys and store them in central warehouses where the toys are sorted by age and gender.  

At Christmas, Coordinators, with the assistance of local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other local community agencies, distribute the toys to the less fortunate children of the community.  Over the years, Marines have established close working relationships with social welfare agencies, churches and other local community agencies which are well qualified to identify the needy children in the community and play important roles in the distribution of the toys.
