Ten-year-old Donates Birthday Gifts to Toys for Tots

McLean Conner, 10, asked his friends to bring toys that could be donated to the Toys for Tots program.

When McLean Conner was getting ready for his 10th birthday party, he decided to ask his friends to bring toys that could be donated to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

"We were a little embarrassed coming back from Birthday parties with industrial garbage bags full of gifts," said his parents, Penni and Nick Conner of Medfield.

"We think he has begun to realize how fortunate he and his brother are (and our family as a whole), and that not all kids are guaranteed an enchanted Christmas like theirs," said Nick.  "This was his 10th Birthday and we think we will carry on this tradition every year.  We are so proud of his unselfish behavior."
