NDMS helps North Texas children have a Merry Christmas
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
On December 20, 2012, Toys for Tots received an entire moving truck full of toys, courtesy of North Dallas Moving and Storage (NDMS). The toys, which were donated by employees, customers, and North Dallas neighbors, filled the 17-foot box truck bound for the Arlington Toys for Tots warehouse. Warehouse workers will sort and distribute toys to Dallas-area underprivileged children, who have been identified by social welfare agencies, church groups, and other community groups.
The toy drive began in October, and the North Dallas community contributed thousands of new, unwrapped toys. This is the first year that North Dallas Moving and Storage has served as a drop-off location for the toys. The drive was so successful that NDMS plans to continue their participation annually.
Toys for Tots was a natural partner for the Dallas movers, since NDMS headquarters can easily provide the free warehouse space necessary for storing and sorting the toys. Toys for Tots relies on local business leaders to play key roles in the toy drives. Partnering companies place drop-off/collection boxes in their stores; provide free warehouse space for storing and sorting toys during October, November and December; and provide vehicles to collect toys from drop-off sites.
“All of us here at North Dallas Moving and Storage are very fortunate,” says Brandon Morris, President, “We wanted to give back, especially to the less fortunate in our community. This is just one way we can help our community prosper and have a Merry Christmas.”
