MCL475 is a proud participant in the Toys for Tots drive. Each November and December, members of MCL475, PNP Normal A Liner Auxiliary Unit, and numerous other volunteers give hours of their time each week to collect and organize toys so that underprivileged children in Terrebonne Parish can wake up to toys under their tree.
Each year, Houma Terrebonne Toys for Tots disperses boxes to dozens of businesses across Terrebonne Parish, as well as holds multiple events for both collecting and dispersing toys. Follow Houma Terrebonne Toys for Tots on facebook for frequent updates on these events and locations during collection season.
