Remarks During Visit to a "Toys for Tots" Collection Center,
December 19, 2005

The President. Two-hundred-eighty-nine-thousand toys being distributed from here to children throughout DC.

It’s an interesting process. The toys are collected; the Marines sort with DC police and distribute. Is that right?

Volunteer. Yes.

The President. Thanks for doing this—a great part of the compassion of our country. Now, I told our troops that, one, we’re a great military; we’re great because of the men and women who serve; we’re great because of our strength. We’re also great because they’re decent people who care about a neighbor in need.

So Laura and I are thrilled to be here. Thank you all for your service. We’re getting to work.

Note: The President spoke at 3:18 p.m. at the Naval District Washington Anacostia Annex.
