I need to know where to sign up for Toys for Tots? I have five kids in need of Christmas presents this year.

You can call your local Sheriffs department tell them you need help with gifts they will get your info and they will help you out. I had to do the same a few years ago and it was great my kids were so happy I have five also. They still had a good xmas and the gifts they got were good. Don't feel bad things will get better hope you have a great xmas.
Some other ideas are to contact your local churches to see if they have a "giving tree", also contact the local VFW, American Legion, etc. Also check with your local food pantries.
Toys for Tots is usually done by/with the Marine Corps. We had a friend that used to be a Marine and he did it every year. Contact your local Marine Recruiting office and they can probalby tell you.

Where can I apply for Toys for Tots in San Bernardino, California? I am a single parent.
By Molina from San Bernardino
Being a single parent doesn't necessarily qualify your for help. I'm sure the deadline for applying for Christmas help has passed. these charities have to have a deadline so they can make their plans. Where I live Toys for Tots is sponsored by different charities or non-profits every year. A lot of the charities get the names of needy families from the Department of Social Services. A kid only needs one present each, from their parents.
I assume their Dad sends gifts and they must have grandparents, aunts and uncles that send gifts. For older kids you can get t-shirts for about $5.00-10.00 at WalMart, for smaller kids you can wrap a color book and crayons as two separate gifts. Why wait until the last minute to worry about things like this.
Start your shopping in January, I've been done for more than a month and everything is wrapped and under the tree. There were times before my kids had grown up that I would have had to be looking for help if I didn't plan ahead.
My kids have never had anything they see advertised on TV and they have never had anything with a designer label. Speak to your pastor, sometimes a church will take up a special offering for a needy member of the congregation.

I'm not sure where to check for Toys for Tots, but you could start with your city or county offices. They should know. Also if you see boxes for Toys for Tots ask the manager of the store for the address or phone number of who placed it there. I truly hope this helps and you have a Blessed Christmas. (12/19/2006)
