Between relatives, gifts, food, and the preparation that goes into each activity, it’s very easy to get wrapped up (pun intended) with the activities that coincide with the season.

What are Toys for Tots?
Toys for Tots is a charity organization organized by the Marine Corps that focuses on providing economically disadvantaged children the joy of receiving gifts at Christmas time. And while it’s assumed that restaurants in Lakewood Ranch are in competition with one another, this isn’t about business, profits, or attracting more customers.
