Toys for Tots

toysfortotsIt’s an exciting time of the year for many of us. We join our families and friends to feast, reflect on the abundance in our lives, and share good memories together.

But for some, the holidays mark a time of heightened hardship and struggle. As you celebrate the holidays with your family and friends, stop to take a couple of moments of your time to help someone else. Each year Century Stereo gives back by helping less fortunate children in our community who do not receive as many gifts as other children. We are proud to be a Toys for Tots drop off location, collecting toys to donate to children who need a little extra holiday cheer.

Help us spread a little extra joy this year! Please stop by our showroom and drop off new, unwrapped toys in our Toys for Tots box in the front of the store.

We are collecting toys at Century Stereo until Monday, December 14.

The Toys for Tots Foundation is a charity run by the United States Marine Corps. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

You can help in a number of ways. The easiest way is to donate a new, unwrapped toy for children ages 0-16. Please note that toys resembling realistic weapons or donations including food will not be accepted/distributed. You can also make a monetary donation or volunteer your time directly with the charity. Through small efforts by many, together we can make a big difference in the lives of children in our community!
