Elmhurst Toyota is proud to announce their success as the top donor for the Toys for Tots organization this past holiday season. The Semper Fi Family Platoon members acted as "Site Captains" by delivering collection boxes to area business around Lombard, Addison, Elmhurst and Villa Park, and recently announced the regional collection results of the toy drive for 2013.
Sandy Winter, the Site Captain for Elmhurst Toyota, said that she picked up more than 20 bags of donated toys from the Elmhusrt Toyota dealership and delivered them to the warehouse in Downers Grove, Illinois, one of many warehouses in the state. “Elmhurst Toyota brought in the largest haul at the end of the donation cycle this year,” said Sandy.
Eileen James, from the Toys for Tots center in DuPage, advised that Elmhurst Toyota donated 146 toys to the 2013 campaign.
“We’re honored to have made such an impact for this great organization. We’ve been involved with Toys for Tots for 14 years, and we are happy we can help. We will definitely be doing the toy drive again next year!” said Brian Corrigan, Service Manager at Elmhurst Toyota.
Elmhurst Toyota has continually hosted toy drives each season for a number of years to benefit Toys for Tots. Each year, they fill up large pickup trucks with piles of toys to delight children in need in the local community.
