Fall River, MA (PRWEB) December 09, 2013
Brightening the holidays for thousands of disadvantaged children this holiday season, Rhode Island Novelty, the nation’s largest supplier of amusement toys and novelties to both businesses and consumers, announced the delivery of more than $16,000.00 worth of toys to the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Thousands of puzzles, games, plush items, and other toys will go to needy families in the Fall River / New Bedford community who have requested support from the foundation due to financial hardship during this holiday season.
The mission of the U. S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. Since its inception in 1947, Toys for Tots has distributed more than 419 million toys to more than 195 million underprivileged children and their families.
“It is an honor to support Toys for Tots in their mission to provide a brighter holiday for children and families in need,” said Michael Rielly, Rhode Island Novelty marketing director. “Rhode Island Novelty has always been a committed supporter of charitable organizations in our community and we are pleased to be contributing to Toys for Tots this holiday season.”
“We thank Rhode Island Novelty for their support and tremendous generosity,” said U.S. Marine Gunnery Sergeant James Dapont. “A donation of this magnitude is definitely going to help out a lot of kids this year.”
