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." To learn more about the Toys for Tots program, click here.

Medfield community continues to do its part in making the Toys for Tots drive an overwhelming success each year.
Medfield is a strong and supportive community built on the values of volunteerism. Those values have been evident through countless events and fundraisers in town that have supported causes much greater than any one individual ever could. One of those causes is the United States Marine Reserve’s Toys for Tots program that comes around every November to collect new toys for children in need during the holiday season. Medfield, being the giving community it is, has done its part over the years to make the fundraiser an overwhelming success. “Last year we raised over 800 toys and collected $1,000 dollars,” said Medfield Police officer Eric Pellegrini, who approached Medfield Chief of Police Robert Meaney Jr. last November about making the …

Over 800 toys and $1,000 donated to 2010 Toys for Tots.
The response to this year's Toys for Tots drive was so overwhelming that, at times, it was difficult to get through the vestibule of the Medfield Police Station which served as a drop-off point this year. The successful Toys for Tots program is run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, which collects new toys for children in need and distributes them as Christmas gifts. "It was pretty good for the first year," said Officer Eric Pellegrini of the Medfield Police Department. "This was the first year we had a donation drop-off at the station and I actually had to move some of the toys because the area was overflowing…It was a very, very good turnout." Pellegrini collaborated with fellow Marine Frank Iafolla who has organized …
