The Toys for Tots program continues to truly define the spirit of the holiday season.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
With 2011 coming to a close, Klinedinst PC has reaffirmed its commitment to Toys for Tots, and become a National Corporate Donor of the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
"We are thrilled that Klinedinst PC has become a national corporate donor of the 2011 Marine Toys for Tots Campaign," said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. "Especially during these uncertain economic times, every dollar of support makes a difference in helping brighten the holidays for children in need."
The U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation organizes the annual Toys for Tots program, which helps less fortunate children across the United States by collecting and distributing toys during the holiday season.
Since its inception in 1947, Toys for Tots has distributed over 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children across the country. Last year alone, the organization distributed over 16 million gifts to 7.2 million children across the country.
"The Toys for Tots program continues to truly define the spirit of the holiday season," noted John D. Klinedinst, CEO and Shareholder of Klinedinst PC. "Helping needy children have a brighter holiday is what makes Toys for Tots such a worthwhile organization."
According to statistics published by the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, 98% of every donation goes directly to the purchase of toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. Only 2% is spent on fundraising expenses, and no funds donated go to pay for salaries or other manpower costs. This incredible ratio earned the Foundation a ranking of #72 in the 2010 Philanthropy 400, published by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
"The Foundation's track record speaks volumes about their management, the commitment of their volunteer base, and their oversight," added Klinedinst. "The fact that 98% of our donation will go directly to kids is a powerful incentive for any firm or organization to get involved with Toys for Tots."
Klinedinst has a long history of community involvement. In 2009, the firm rolled out a pilot program internally to raise awareness and support the Toys for Tots Foundation. Based on the success of that pilot program, the firm and its employees decided to dramatically expand the Toys for Tots recognition program firmwide the following year. "The feedback received from both employees and clients alike was incredibly positive," added Klinedinst. "We are honored to be able to join the ranks of some of the most respected companies in assisting with the mission of Toys for Tots."
