As Christmas Day inches closer, we at Treasure Island Storage would like to thank those generous individuals who participated in the Marines Toys for Tots Program this year. Your goodwill and kindness will help bring holiday joy and play the role of Santa Claus for America’s less fortunate children, as well as sending a message of hope during what has been an especially tough year for many families.
This year, the impact of this campaign is perhaps bigger than it’s ever been. The COVID-19 pandemic—which has already strained resources, shuttered businesses, and left millions without a job—continues to impact individuals throughout the world. Charity projects like the Marines Toys for Toys Program are a great way to spread goodwill to those in need, which is why Treasure Island Storage once again became an official participant in the program this year.
From late October through the end of the program on December 15th, we saw so many new and unwrapped toys for younger children be dropped off at our Treasure Island Storage locations scattered throughout New York and New Jersey. Along with you, we are experiencing the joy of knowing that somewhere, these toys will be under a Christmas tree bringing a smile to a less fortunate child on Christmas morning.
Since its founding in 1947, the Toys for Tots Foundation has united the local community in a common cause for three months each year during their annual toy collection and distribution campaign. So far, thanks to your generosity, they’ve now distributed over 540 million toys. Thank you for supporting Marine Toys for Tots, and have a wonderful holiday!
