Mrs. Trump offered brief remarks before helping the children place toys in boxes, saying, "As a mother, I feel children are the most precious gift of all. As First Lady, I have made it my mission to shine a light on programs that provide more opportunities for children to succeed."

After the children put the toys in the boxes, they sat down to write Christmas cards to go along with each box. The first lady along with several US Marines assisted the children with their letters.

Santa also made an appearance, bearing drawstring bags with "Be Best" printed on the exterior. Mrs. Trump assisted in distributing the bags before visiting with the parents of the children in attendance.

The Marine Toys for Tots program has been delivering a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters since 1947, according to the foundation's website.
