FirstService Residential Dallas and Fort Worth Offices Join Forces to Donate Over 100 Toys to Toys for Tots

Just in time for the holidays, FirstService Residential associates in Dallas and Fort Worth offices collected over 100 toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Items will be distributed to families in need throughout Dallas/Fort Worth. Through this annual initiative, FirstService Residential helps further the mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation: to provide a tangible sign of hope to disadvantaged children at Christmas.

Toys for Tots Drive at FirstService Residential kicked off on "Giving Tuesday" this year. Large donation bins wrapped like Christmas presents were set up throughout the Dallas and Fort Worth offices. Within just one week, the bins were bursting with new toys, games, arts/crafts, books and school supplies contributed by associates.

Toys were then transported to a collection event with U.S. Marines at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, TX, and to the Disney Store, which matched each donation with $5 for Toys for Tots.

"Being genuinely helpful in serving our communities is a core value here at FirstService Residential," explains Mira Roxanne Baker, Manager of Communications and Culture and leader of the Toys for Tots drive in Dallas. "Serving our communities means uniting all local community members in a common cause."

Seven million children had a brighter holiday season this year because of the 18 million toys distributed by the Marine Toys for Tots Program. FirstService Residential associates plan to continue helping U.S. Marine Corps spread Christmas cheer to local families in need for years to come.

About the Marine Toys for Tots Program:

Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Toys for Tots Program fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 244 million children have been assisted. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not for profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
