Each year The Texas State Guard (State Defense Force) holds a statewide toy drive to collect toys for children in need. Since 2009, The Young Heroes of the Guard Toy Drive, has donated over half a million toys to children in schools, hospitals, daycares, & shelters throughout Texas. Last year they achieved an astonishing 70,000 toys donated. As they begin collecting for this years Holiday they hope to surpass this goal and bring more smiles to children throughout Texas.
