Last year, ezStorage helped collect a large amount of toys for the Toys for Tots campaigns thanks to donations from our customers! The storage unit in Westminster was filled at least once and was close to being filled a second time before the campaign ended. The 2012 national Toys for Tots campaign was extremely successful with over $16.7 Million in collected toys! The campaign also received donations from corporate sponsors, website donations and direct mail solicitations.

Toys for Tots  is a non-profit charity created by the United States Marines Reserves to collect toys and then distribute them to less fortunate children. The program started in 1947 with World War II veterans in Los Angeles. Currently, there are toy collection campaigns in 745 communities in all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. As in the past, there are many corporate sponsors of the holiday toy drive including: Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Hasbro, UPS Store, and Build-a-Bear just to name a few. In 2012, the program distributed $16.7M worth of toys to over 7 Million less fortunate children. The program partners with local social welfare agencies, church groups and other local community agencies to distribute the toys to the children for Christmas.

There are many ways to donate to Toys for Tots . You can drop off a toy to a collection box or make a donation via the Toys for Tots website. If you can’t make it to the select ezStorage facilities to drop off your donation, you can also find other places on your community that are collection sites for the campaign. Keep up-to-date with the 2013 holiday drive via the Toys for Tots Facebook Page  or Twitter page . ezStorage thanks everyone for their donations to this great and worthwhile organization.
