The annual Federated Toys for Tots campaign is in full swing leading into the holidays, according to John Marcum, director of marketing for Federated Auto Parts.
“Federated kicked off the season in a big way by recently presenting a check for $264,000 to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign, but that’s not all,” said Marcum. “Now through the holidays, participating Federated members are also collecting toys and monetary donations for the campaign. They have put together some terrific programs at the local level to make sure Christmas is a little brighter for those in need.”
Federated members such as Arnold Oil in Austin, Texas and California-based Vaca Valley Auto Parts are not only collecting toys and donations for the campaign, but both members have created special promotional programs for their customers and employees. Federated member Warehouse Inc. headquartered in Hays, Kansas is collecting toys at 82 locations in five states and is also working with a local high school that has chosen Toys for Tots as the charity for its class project.
