Charity Spotlight: Toys for Tots

The year is coming to a close, and we want to highlight a very special charity that brings toys to millions of children during the holiday season: Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots

Toys for Tots Car Donation Program

United States Marines and local volunteers come together to support children all across the country. They ensure that everyone can share a smile and the joy of unwrapping a special gift.

The program started in 1947, has distributed 548 million toys to 251 million children. Toys for Tots has a simple mission: to collect new toys and distribute them to less fortunate children during Christmastime. The toys bring more than just fun, they bring hope.

To support the program, the U.S. Marine Corps created the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation in 1991. The Foundation assists with program services and support services that cannot be handled by the Marine Corps, as they are a federal agency.

They have hundreds of campaigns across the country and make it easy to give toys to children in your community. You can support the program by donating toys, volunteering, or even by donating your car, motorcycle, boat, or RV!

Toys for Tots Vehicle Donation

If you don’t have toys or time to spare, you can help support the mission by donating your vehicle through our Cars for Tots donation program. You can donate your car, motorcycle, boat, or RV.

This easy car donation process involves visiting our website or reaching us by phone at (877) 215-0227.¬†After completing a simple form, you’ll hear from a local tow agency in about 2 business days. Your car will be picked up in no time, and we will provide a tax receipt for your donation.

Between 75-80% of the gross proceeds of the vehicle’s sale go directly to support Toys for Tots and make sure less fortunate children can enjoy a Merry Christmas.
