​We the trustees of Detachment 697 of the Marine Corps League, Placerville, California, condemn racial prejudice, political bigotry, rioting and lawlessness, and the operation of cancel culture.  We are a patriotic, non-political organization which, among other things, collects toys for low income children for distribution during the Christmas season.  The Santa Claus who was photographed at the Toys For Tots event on 5 Dec 20 was not invited to participate by Toys For Tots or the Marine Corps League.  We invite all members of the community to support Toys for Tots 2021.
