Bealls Department Stores, Inc. is happy to announce our statewide partnership with the Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots program. Bealls Department Stores has worked with the Manatee county Toys for Tots over the last five years serving as a toy drop-off location at our two department stores located in Bradenton, Florida. This year we’ve grown our partnership to all of our 74 locations
Toys for Tots drop-boxes will be in each of the Bealls Department stores throughout Florida beginning November 15, 2013 and will remain in place through December 20, 2013.
"We are very pleased to have Bealls on board the 2013 Marine Toys for Tots Team," said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. "Their community service goals certainly align with those the Marine Corps has promoted for over 65 years through our Toys for Tots Program." Grein concluded, "With their support we will fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of many additional less fortunate children in the state of Florida, who otherwise might be overlooked."
About Toys For Tots
The mission of the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
