TOYS FOR TOTS GETS A SPECIAL DELIVERY FROM KIMCO
Kimco associates came together this holiday season to donate over 150 toys to one of our favorite organizations, Toys for Tots, which is an official activity of the U.S. Marine Corps. Our offices were filled with toys for children of all ages -- baby toys, remote control cars for older kids, tons of games for families, Barbies galore, hula hoops, tea sets ... It was quite a collection! Two Marines came to our offices to pick up the toys, which you can see here.
THE GIFT OF PLAY: Kimco associates donated over 150 toys to Toys for Tots this holiday season
Kimco has been running a Toys for Tots drive during the holidays for about 10 years. We’re honored to help support the organization and its mission to give gifts to less fortunate children in the community. We also have several Marines and other military members on the Kimco team, so Toys for Tots has been especially important to us. To date, the Marine Toys for Tots Program has distributed some 469 million toys to over 216 million less fortunate children.
Giving back continues to be a big part of Kimco’s corporate culture, and we’re proud to support our community during the holidays and all year long through the many fundraisers, donations, and charity events we join. 2014 is sure to bring another year of goodwill from the Kimco family.
We hope all the children enjoy their gifts, and we wish a happy holiday to everyone!
