Hunt Military Communities (HMC), the military housing division of Hunt Companies Inc., announced today its support for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program this holiday season. A number of donation drop off stations have been designated at 19 Hunt Military Communities across the nation including: Barksdale (LA), Bolling (DC), Buckley (CO) Langley (VA), Hanscom (MA), Shaw (SC), Keesler (MS), Ohana Marines and Navy (HI), Crane (IN), Patrick (FL), Cottonwood (ID), Little Rock (AR), Kirtland (NM), Quail Hollow and Hunter’s Cove (TX), Nellis (NV), Robins (GA), and Scott (IL).
Toys for Tots is a 71-year-old national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and brings holiday cheer to more than 7 million disadvantaged children each season. Donations given to Toys for Tots directly impact children in the local communities.
“We’re proud to be contributing to this great organization that helps spread joy to children during the holiday season, said John Ehle, President of Hunt Military Communities. “We’re always looking for opportunities to support our armed service members and this is a great way to partner with the Marines and give back to our local communities.”
As a longstanding supporter of the military community, HMC values the opportunity to participate in the Toys for Tots Program and further assist families in need during the holiday season.

About Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots, a 71-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.
