In addition to being an official donation collection site, hotels are collecting spare change and $1 train cutouts, available for purchase by guests to donate to Toys for Tots.

Windsor Capital Group (WCG), announced today its 21 hotels across the United States are in full swing again this year serving as official collection sites for this holiday season’s Toys for Tots drive. Toys for Tots, which is run by the Marines, collects and distributes toys to children in need. Every WCG hotel is a designated drop off site for the local chapter of Toys for Tots.

Windsor Capital Group, based in Santa Monica, Calif., owns and operates 21 hotels throughout the United States with its hotel management company Windsor Management Services. The company issued a challenge to all its employees four years ago to nominate a charity that all 21 hotels could support to help give back to local communities and Toys for Tots was selected and is now one of the company’s official annual charities.

"The number of children living below the poverty level is now over 16 million; a figure I've never known to be higher," said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, the vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. "In order for us to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of as many of these children as possible, we're going to need a lot of individual and corporate support," Grein continued. "Fortunately, we have Windsor Capital Group and their hotels back for the fourth year to help us reach these kids."

In 2011, through the efforts of Windsor Capital Group, more than 3,000 toys and $1,500 in spare change were collected and donated to Toys for Tots.

In addition to being an official donation collection site, hotels are collecting spare change and $1 train cutouts, available for purchase by guests to donate to Toys for Tots.
