First Lady Makes A Little Girl’s Christmas Dream Come True
The annual drive is hosted by the United States Marine Corps Reserve and is regularly attended by the first lady in recent administrations. Toys for Tots distributes new toys to needy children around the country. The charity is often supported by the military and law enforcement.
The first lady delivered brief remarks to a hangar full of children and their enlisted parents on the military base. After the remarks, Melania led the children to giant tables full of toys for sorting. These are the toys that will be delivered to the needy children. The sorting process involved the first lady and approximately 100 little children putting the toys in boxes.
During this chaos, Melania knelt down to help one little girl who was confused. This was little 7-year-old Jackie Rodriguez. Rodriguez spoke with the first lady, who listened intently. Melania helped Rodriguez out with her toy sorting and then led her to the table for writing Christmas cards.
“The First Lady will be gifting 100 books to the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. Since starting in 2008, the program has distributed over 39 million books to less fortunate children, helping to reduce the illiteracy rate among children.Mrs. Trump will also be giving Be Best totes filled with a coloring book and White House candies to all the children that will be helping out at the drive.
