Nonprofit Group Struggling To Survive In Flint
The “Marines Taking Care of Kids” organization might find itself without a home, and that could mean more challenges for the “Toys for Tots” program that needs the space to store toys for the holiday. “Toys for Tots” gets free office and storage space from the Marines, and although they work hand in hand, they don’t share finances. “Marines Taking Care of Kids” has an annual budget of about $30,000 and has just been breaking even each month, and the building they use is in need of renovations. “Marines Taking Care of Kids” helps families after events such as fires, while “Toys for Tots” provides toys on a seasonal basis.
