Annual Toys for Tots Collection Drive at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment is holding its 13th annual Toys for Tots Collection Drive through Saturday, December 10th.

All are welcome to bring in new, unwrapped toys throughout the day and spread some magic and cheer this holiday season to a child in need. Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment will be donating all collected toys to the local Marine Corps Toys for Tots.

Since its approval to be an official activity of the U.S. Marine Corps in 1995, the mission of the Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year. The program then distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Live racing at Meadowlands Racing & Entertainment continues this Friday and Saturday night. First race post time is 7:15 p.m.
