The Toys Jimmy collects will benefit the East Texas Children’s Welfare Board (For Foster and Adopted Children), CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) and of course The Marine Corps League’s Toys for Tots and other Toy Drives that are in need.
To Date, JJO’s Ton of Toys Toy Drive has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds of Toys and countless bikes that have touched so many children’s lives on Christmas Morning. Starting in 1999 in Houston, TX and continuing in 2009 in Tyler, TX.
This is unlike any toy drive and it is a struggle for Jimmy as he lives in a Box (POD), unshaven and unbathed. He won’t leave until at least 2,000 pounds of Toys and 200 bikes are raised for Needy Children in East Texas.
