New Orleans Saints encourage fans attending Sunday's game to bring toys for "Touchdown for Tots"

New Orleans Saints and the U.S. Marine Corps joined forces to launch this holiday season’s Touchdown for Tots program

The New Orleans Saints and U.S. Marine Corps will be collecting new, unwrapped toys for their Touchdown for Tots program at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Sunday prior to the Panthers game.

The main collection locations will be at Gate A Ground, Gates A & C Upper Level exterior and at each entrance of Champions Square.

The Saints and Marines joined forces to launch this holiday season's Touchdown for Tots program, a football-themed toy drive to help bring holiday cheer to the 16 million children living in poverty..

The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation's most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
