Both doctors have joined the Marines in a massive campaign to confront poverty and illiteracy by working with the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Literacy Program. According to the National Center for Children in Poverty, over 16,000,000 children in the United States live below the federal poverty level.
“As professionals in New York, we feel it is our job to help the people of our communities. We work everyday to bring hope to this area through improving literacy,” said the Doctors in a joint statement. “We know that by ensuring the youth in our area are reading, we are assisting them to have a brighter 2014 and 2015.”
In 2014, Dr. Arvind Philomin & Dr. Divya Adusumilli are committed to the big event in Clearwater, along with other professionals, celebrities and Toys for Tots to sponsor more than $1,000,000.00 worth of donated books. This is in alignment with the Toys for Tots Literacy Program to offer our nation’s most economically disadvantaged children an opportunity to compete academically and succeed in life. Large companies such as The UPS Store, FAO Schwartz, Hasbro, Toys R Us, The Walt Disney Company and more have joined the fight in supporting the Toys for Tots Literacy Campaign.

Dr. Arvind Philomin: “I agree with what the Lt. General (retired) of the U.S. Marines and President CEO of the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, Mr. Pete Osman said, ‘Through the gift of a book we can provide the tools needed to help break the cycle of poverty, one child at a time.'”
In 1947, Toys for Tots began in Los Angeles when Major Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine Reservists collected and distributed 5,000 Toys to disadvantaged children.
