The holiday season is fast approaching.  Once again, many ezStorage locations will be participating in the Toys for Tots program. ezStorage has participated in this very worthwhile program for over 5 years.

Toys for Tots  is a non-profit program created by the United States Marines Reserves to collect new toys and then distribute the toys to less fortunate children. The program started in 1947 by Bill Hendricks USCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles. This small group collected toys for over 5000 needy children. The next year, the Marine Reserves adopted the program and it has been going strong ever since. Local toy giving campaigns are conducted in over 700 communities covering all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. The Toys for Tots program works with local businesses as collection points for toys during the holiday season. There are also corporate sponsors such as Babies R Us, FAO Schwartz, Toys R Us, The Disney Company, Duracell, Coca-Cola and American Airlines to just name a few. You have probably seen the commercials about local businesses collection toys as well as national shows such as “Ellen”, who takes donations and then matches them for the organization. Since its inception, Toys for Tots has distributed more than 452 million toys to more than 209 million needy children. The organization works with local social welfare agencies, churches and community agencies to access the need and distribute the toys to the community.

Stop by the ezStorage locations listed above to drop off new toys and stay tuned for more locations in the area that are joining the program. If you cannot donate a toy in person, you can make a donation on the Toys for Tots website. ezStorage thanks everyone for your past support of this great and very worthwhile organization.
