This year the Quail Creek Semper Fi Club (QCSFC) teamed with the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), Green Valley Chapter, to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program. The program provides new toys to needy families with children ages 1 to 12 in the greater Tucson area.

The MOAA kicked off the drive with a toy collection at their November monthly members dinner. Besides collecting toys, they also collected more than $400 in cash donations.

The QCSFC placed collection boxes in the Madera Clubhouse, and the toy donations were extraordinary. Along with the MOAA donations, more than eight large moving boxes were filled to the top with a wide variety of toys.

We sincerely appreciate the generosity of the Quail Creek residents and the MOAA members. Your donations are providing life-changing remembrances for these children.

If you have any interest in joining either of these worthy organizations, you can find information for the Quail Creek Semper Fi Club (Marines and friends of the Corps) at, and for the MOAA (former military officers, regardless of service, and surviving spouses) at
