Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

This season Scholfield Auto Plaza and Porsche of Wichita are striving to make the holidays unforgettable for those children less fortunate by participating in the Toys for Tots Foundation Toy Drive.

Simply visit our showroom and donate a new, unwrapped toy by December 19 and we’ll make sure it reaches them in time for the holiday. Every child deserves a gift this holiday season – help us to make it a memorable year for those less fortunate.

-Happy Holidays

Toys for tots Began in 1947, when Major Bill Hendricks, USCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children.  The idea came form Bill’s wife, Diane.  In the fall of 1947, Diane crafted a homemade doll and asked Bill to deliver the doll to an organization, which would give it to a needy child at Christmas.  When Bill determined that no agency existed, Diane told Bill that he should start one.  He did.  The 1947 pilot project was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign.
