Deerfield Beach, Florida (PRWEB) December 12, 2014
In its fourth year participating with Toys for Tots, People's Trust Insurance announced its largest collection of gifts yet: more than 300 toys have been collected to benefit less fortunate children throughout Broward County. This year, People’s Trust doubled up on its important role, hosting a drop-off site by housing a collection box.
In addition to serving as a drop-off location to their employees to bring toy donations, People's Trust donated $1,800 in toys, another $500 worth of bicycles and $250 in Cuddle Covers. People’s Trust has been an enthusiastic supporter of Toys for Tots throughout most of the company’s existence.
“Broward County is our home, and all of us at People’s Trust recognize the importance of giving back to the community,” said George Schaeffer, the company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Toys for Tots enables less fortunate children to experience the joy of this season, and we proudly embrace the cause.”
The Toys for Tots program, run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, collects new, unwrapped toys from October though mid-December. Coordinators then collect the donated toys and sort them by age and gender. During the Christmas holiday season, local community and philanthropic organizations distribute the toys to the less fortunate children of the community.
In addition to helping children enjoy the holidays, Toys for Tots unites members of the community in a common cause while helping countless youngsters become responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.
