Toys For Tots

ezStorage is proud to once again participate in the 2015 Toys for Tots holiday campaign. This year, 10 ezStorage locations will have collection boxes for new and unwrapped toys for children for the 2015 Toys for Tots campaign. Our Westminster storage facility at 1200 Baltimore Avenue in Westminster, Maryland has once again donated a 10×30 storage unit as a collection point for this year’s program.

The 2014 national Toys for Tots campaign exceeded monetary and toy donations reaching a total revenue of $284 million! Volunteers distributed over 18 million toys to 7 million less fortunate children! The campaign also had an extremely successful year in receiving nearly $50 million in donations from corporate sponsors, website donations, direct mail solicitations and unsolicited donations. Toys for Tots has a partnership with major sponsors including Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Hasbro, Disney and Macy’s.

Toys for Tots Donations

There are many ways to donate to Toys for Tots from dropping off an unwrapped toy to a collection box or making a donation via the Toys for Tots website. If you can’t make it to one of the ten ezStorage Toys for Tots drop off locations, your community probably has other Toys for Tots donation locations .

What is Toys for Tots?

Toys for Tots  is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit charity created by the United States Marines Reserves to collect toys and then distribute them to less fortunate children. The program was started in Los Angeles in 1947 by a group of World War II veterans.  In 1995, the Secretary of Defense approved Toys for Tots as an official activity for the U.S. Marine Corps and an official mission of the Marine Corps Reserve.  Currently, there are toy collection campaigns in 759 communities in all 50 states, Washington D.C., Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Guam. Since its inception, the Toys for Tots toy collection program has distributed over 494 million toys to over 230 million less fortunate children.  The program partners with local social welfare agencies, church groups and other local community agencies to distribute the toys to children for Christmas. Local toy collections begin in October and last until mid-December, so the toys can be distributed to children by Christmas.

ezStorage thanks everyone who has donated to the Toys for Tots program in the past and who continue to support this great and worthwhile organization.
