Joseph Schmittou Detachment Takes The Helm

With the departure of the U.S. Marine Detachment of the Navy Supply Corps School Athens, GA, The Toys For Tots Campaign in the area surrounding Athens-Clarke County was in jeopardy of coming to an end because it no longer had a trained and approved Campaign Coordinator.

When the local Toys For Tots campaign was threatened by the closing of the Navy Supply Corps School here in Athens, GA... The Joseph Schmittou Detachment #1083 of the Marine Corps League responded by providing a member of the detachment to attend a 4 day coordinators conference at Marine Corps Base Quantico, VA where they were certified as a Toys For Tots Foundation coordinator for Clarke, Greene, Jackson, Madison, Oconee and Oglethorpe Counties.

The detachment has teamed up with the Athens Jaycees who have volunteered to provide extensive support from 22 November through The end of December to make sure that as many children in need as is possible can experience a very merry Christmas.

It is our detachments wish that everyone involved, including those in need, those volunteering and those donating will receive a blessed and satisfied feeling from their involvement.

We will be working with several vetting agencies like Community connection, the Salvation Army and Catholic Charities to streamline our distribution efforts.
