It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! The Mustard Seed Community in Kingston will be gifted with toys through the annual United States Marine Corps ‘Toys for Tots’ program.

Darcy Tulloch-Williams, Executive Director of the Mustard Seed Community Jamaica, was on hand to receive the toys from United States Ambassador to Jamaica, Donald Tapia, and the Marine Security Detachment. This donation of toys will be shared among some four hundred children within the Mustard Seed Communities.

Ambassador Tapia lauded the Marines for their efforts and thanked Tulloch-Williams for her continued commitment to the organization. “I’m in full support of this initiative which helps to give a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children to experience the joy of Christmas,” the ambassador said.

The Toys for Tots program is a United States Marine Corps global initiative, which intends to spread a message of hope, further assisting youth in taking on responsible, productive and patriotic lives.
