Little by little, toy by toy, we all can draw smiles on children’s faces and have a positive impact on their lives.
Anniston, AL (PRWEB) November 07, 2017
McCullars & Lincoln Insurance & Retirement Planning has unveiled a new charity campaign for Toys for Tots of East Central Alabama as part of their innovative community involvement program. Toys for Tots has been a landslide win since the very beginning. From the 5,000 toys collected and distributed in 1947, spearheaded by Major Bill Hendricks of the USMCR, the program has grown and spread like wildfire. Now in its 70th year, The Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots has become a nationwide, 90-day community action project which last year resulted in $280 million in revenue – the second best year to date. To donate money to this worthy cause, readers may visit https://www.crowdrise.com/gifting-hope-this-holiday-season.
In addition to being tax-deductible, it’s good to know that a whopping 97.4% of all money raised goes straight to the program, meaning that millions of underprivileged children have the opportunity to feel the excitement that comes from being given a bright, shiny new toy and knowing they weren’t forgotten. Best of all, all toys collected stay right in the community, helping less fortunate kids at home to have a happier Christmas. The forward-thinking Marines at Toys for Tots believe that with each toy comes a kind message of hope that will assist children in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. But uniting communities across America in a common cause for three months isn’t all. Fun activities are organized throughout the year to increase visibility, community support and donations.
“Little by little, toy by toy, we all can draw smiles on children’s faces and have a positive impact on their lives,” said Chad Lincoln, principal of McCullars & Lincoln Insurance & Retirement Planning. “It’s a perfect fit for our new community enrichment program. What higher calling could there be in this season of giving than passing joy and hope to a struggling neighbor’s child?”
Utilizing its own resources and seeking the help of its vast network of customers and business partners, McCullars & Lincoln marches on to ensure customers, friends, family and neighbors are always in good hands. Social media and an email awareness campaign will be used to help the agency’s caring team to spread the word about the campaign for Toys for Tots. They have also featured the cause in their monthly magazine, Our Hometown, which is delivered to thousands of households in the greater Anniston metro area.

Supporting a joyful holiday for all the community’s children has never been easier, as McCullars & Lincoln has promised to donate $10 to Toys for Tots for each and every referral they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase necessary. Readers who would like to view the campaign, refer a friend or make a personal donation may do so at http://mccullarsandlincoln.com/causes/gifting-hope-holiday-season/. Those who wish to drop off new, unwrapped toys are also welcome to do so at the agency’s offices on S. Quintard Ave. in Anniston.
