Additionally, these participating dealerships will serve as official Toys for Tots collection centers. Each dealership will strive to fill a vehicle on display in its showroom with collected toys. Visitors to these dealerships who drop off a new, unwrapped toy between Dec. 1-15 will receive a $5 coupon for each toy they donate, to be used towards service at any of the five participating dealerships.
"We continually strive to earn the trust of our associates, customers, and communities by making each a part of our family, and we are committed to giving back to the communities we serve. Our partnership with Toys for Tots will help to put smiles on the faces of needy children in our communities this holiday season," said Alex Carbone, Vice President at Carbone Auto Group.
The Marine Corps Reserve will pick up the toys for distribution as holiday gifts to less fortunate children in the local communities.
Toys for Tots is a national charitable organization run by the Marine Corps Reserve.
