OP Golf Members Council donates to Toys for Tots
The Ocean Pines Golf Members Council recently made a sizable donation to the Toys for Tots program.
Items were donated during the Members Council’s annual Golf Dinner Dance, held at the Ocean Pines Golf Club on Nov. 3.
Toys for Tots was founded in 1947 and is run nationally by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve.
Joe Pantone, a Marine Corps veteran, assisted with the toy collection in Ocean Pines.
“On behalf of all Marines, I would like to thank the Members Council for sponsoring the annual Golf Dinner Dance, and the golf membership for their generous donation of toys in support of our annual Toys for Tots program,” Pantone said. “We collected approximately 75 toys, which is an outstanding number, based on past years.
“Your donations will bring much needed happiness on Christmas morning to those less future children in our community,” he added.
Pantone said additional Toys for Toys donations can be made to drop-off sites throughout the community, including at A Bagel And … in Ocean Pines.
