Do you need storage solutions during the holidays? Lionville Self Storage is doing more than just helping homeowners and businesses find the space they need this season. With a small gift you can give back with a charity near and dear to many of us.
Toys for Tots has been a pillar in many of our communities since they first began. We need your help this year to make it a special year for boys and girls all around the country. Making memories with families and spending time together is very important, help make this possible for families in need.
It all started in 1947 in Los Angeles when Major Bill Hendricks gave a handmade doll to kick of the season. After that year the United States Marine Corps Reserve (USMCR) took over the fundraising and promotion. The first year they made an impact with a little over 5,000 toys. After the word spread Toys for Tots spread country wide in no time.
Last year they reached the second highest goal with 280 million dollars raised in toys and donations. Families, businesses, and organizations pull together to show their support.
We are excited to be working with an organization that cares so much. All of the Marine Corps Reserve offices are drop off locations along with a many businesses. The goal is to present kids with a new toy from someone who is an upstanding member of society, someone everyone looks up to. Veterans, officers and other military officials head to high poverty areas with a bag of gifts. With strong members of the community leading this fundraiser, these young minds can see the good in the world.
We are thankful for all the wonderful presents our office has so far. Thank you if you were one of the generous people who purchased an extra gift this year for our holiday initiative.
