“AAA Mid-Atlantic strives to assist those in need throughout the communities we serve,” says Jana L. Tidwell, manager of Public and Government Affairs, AAA Mid-Atlantic. “Last year, as part of our Corporate Citizenship program, more than 60 AAA offices participated in the toy drive throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.”
According to the Toys for Tots official website, all toys should remain unwrapped for donation. Gifts are accepted for children up to 16 years old. Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will not be distributed.
About The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation
Toys for Tots, a 69 year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to economically disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime.
