This year, in celebration of the 2019 Holiday Season, Ox will be teaming up for a company-wide effort to support Toys for Tots. Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve with a long-running track record of goodwill. The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is to assist the U. S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas.
We will be setting out toy collection boxes at each of our facilities from now until December 10th. Our goal is to collect as many unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 1 to 13 during the allotted timeframe as possible.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
Drop-off an Unwrapped Toy in Your Facility’s Collection Box
We will be collecting unwrapped toys for boys and girls ages 1 to 13 years old. Toys for Tots typically run short on toys for 1-year old children and 11 to 13-year old children. Of course, EVERY toy collected will be heartfelt and appreciated, but it is important to be aware of the shortage areas.
Write a Check to Toys for Tots
Monetary gifts are also accepted. If time is not on your side during the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you can write a check out to Marines Toys for Tots Foundation in the amount of $10 or more.
Ask your Friends and Family to Donate a Toy
Please tell your friends and family in the areas our collection boxes are located about the program and the opportunity to give. The more, the better!
A FEW THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
- Toys should have a value of $10 or more
- Toys should be new
- Toys should be unwrapped
- Any checks should be made out to Marines Toys for Tots Foundation
Many children go without a gift for Christmas, not because their parents don’t care or don’t believe, but because they don’t have the means to buy their children a present.
