PAWTUCKET â€” As everyone knows, being a Marine is not about fun and games â€” except at Christmastime, when they volunteer their valuable time to drum up donations for the annual Toys for Tots program.
In Rhode Island, this year's Toys for Tots program is being supervised by Staff Sgt. Michael Cremin. Under his watch, a handful of local Marines have amassed thousands of new toys for youngsters who would otherwise go without during the holiday season.
WOONSOCKET â€“ The mountainous cache of toys and games did not originate at the North Pole, it was not created by elves, and it did not arrive by sleigh.
It was manufactured by Pawtucket-based Hasbro, Inc., and hefted up a flight of stairs by the toy giantâ€™s employees, one shipping crate at a time, onto the creaky floor of an old spinning mill on Mendon Road.
But when underprivileged kids find the goodies under Christmas trees from Woonsocket to Westerly on the big day, no one has to know they didnâ€™t come from Santa.
