It’s December, a Perfect Month to Donate to Toys for Tots and more!by Dutch Silverstein December 2, 2021
Having celebrated Veteran’s Day less than a month ago, the topic of supporting and honoring our Veterans is still at large. Our team at A&M Auto Service wants to take a moment to highlight the Marine Corps League & how this organization positively impacts its communities & better lives. So if you’ve never heard of the Marine Corps League, get ready!
Toys for Tots
With an incredible 604 million toys distributed since its beginning in 1947, Toys for Tots has been a hugely successful & joyful Marine Corps League program that’s impacted millions and millions of children across the country. Two hundred seventy-two million children to this day! 97% of all their donations go directly to their mission of providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. The remaining 3% is spent on support for fundraising expenses. If you are looking for ways to spread Christmas cheer during these unprecedented times, the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program is an exceptional one to support.
Locally, a sector in Charlotte, NC, supported 12,011 children with 36,990 toys in 2020. We hope to surpass that this year, so hop in your car and deliver new unwrapped toys to help support your local Marine Core League Toys for Tots!
