CertaSite Serves is back! And this time we're teaming up with Toys for Tots to support their annual toy drive. We are so excited to launch our holiday community initiative as part of CertaSite Serves and we're excited to see the amazing achievements of this campaign with your help!
Given the impact of the CV19 pandemic, buying toys and fulfilling wish lists for Santa will be harder than ever this holiday season. Every child deserves a special holiday celebration so CertaSite Serves is partnering with Toys for Tots to make this happen. Our goal is to gather 100 toys at each location over the course of 3 weeks, so 33 toys/week. Across our 15 locations, that's 1,500 toys! Think about what a blessing that will be to our CertaSite friends and neighbors who are trying to make the holidays special. We CAN do this!
Toys for Tots, founded in 1991 by the Marine Corps, collects new unwrapped toys and distributes these toys to less fortunate children at Christmas. The foundation's mission is, through the gift of a new toy, to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children. Visit the Toys for Tots website to learn more about the foundation.
