We know that this year, more families than ever will be turning to the US Marine Corps Toys For Tots® program for help to provide their children with toys on Christmas Morning. So, even though it’s still September and the school year is barely off to a start, we have decided to kick-off our 2020 Toys For Tots® collection, giving everyone more of an opportunity to shop (online or in stores) and get those toys to the Northwest EMS collection boxes.
For those of you that are new to how Northwest EMS promotes our Toys For Tots® collection, let us explain:
- For your convenience, we provide collection boxes and posters to your business (You simply place and begin collecting!)
- We ask that you place your box in a prominent location where foot traffic passes (but also in a location that can be monitored for theft)
- We ask that you promote that you have a collection box/promote the U S Marine Corp program on your website, social media, newsletters, or other means appropriate for your business
- When promoting, please state that you are participating “in partnership with Northwest EMS”
At the end of the collection period (last date to donate – TBD), Northwest EMS will pick up the boxes and toys and handle the delivery to the Toys For Tots® distribution site. All toys donated to Toys For Tots® as part of the Northwest EMS collection will go directly to the Lancaster County Toys For Tots program. That means your donation stays local!
Remember – All donations should be NEW and UNWRAPPED.
If your business would like to be a supporting partner with Northwest EMS and participate in our collection, please contact our Community Outreach Manager, Lori Shenk, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 717-371-8282.
