Tex Reynolds' Toys for Tots
OUR WORKSHOP IS OPEN AND OUR VOLUNTEERS ARE BACK TO WORK GETTING READY FOR CHRISTMAS 2021!!!

A helping hand for kids during the Holidays for over 90 years!
Tex Reynolds’ Toys for Tots is a non-profit organization with the sole purpose of ensuring every needy child in the Racine County area has a wonderful holiday season. It is a challenging goal that takes, not only the hundreds of volunteers working at the Toys for Tots workshop and from home, but also the thousands of families that donate unneeded, unused or repairable toys to the program each year. We also accept new toys and monetary donations of any amount.
Ours is a story of helping hands trying to improve the quality of life in our community. We hope that you will read our story and join in our quest. There are many aspects of the Toys for Tots program where your skills and talents (regardless of what they might be) can be utilized. Our volunteers work hard throughout the year, but it is a fun journey.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE MARINE CORPS TOYS FOR TOTS.
Below is the registration information for our 2021 Christmas gift-giving program. We are providing gifts to boys and girls from birth through age 10.
