CertaSite Serves is Stepping Up to Support the Toys for Tots Program

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots has become a staple CertaSite Serves giving campaign. We always have many donations for the less fortunate children around our communities making the donation drive a success each year. 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.

Our drive this year begins today, November 7 and runs through December 20. Each location has different drop-off deadlines with many in early- to mid-December. We encourage online donations once local drop off is complete.

The last few years, we not only reached our goal, but far exceeded it due to all of your generosity. Our goal this year is to gather a total of 1000+ toys. If each branch collected 75 toys, think about what a blessing that will be to our CertaSite friends and neighbors who are trying to make the holidays special.

Toys for Tots, founded in 1991 by the Marine Corps, collects new unwrapped toys and distributes these toys to less fortunate children during the holidays. The foundation's mission is, through the gift of a new toy, to help bring the joy of the holidays and send a message of hope to America's less fortunate children.
