At Smith Douglas Homes, we love being involved in giving back to the community whenever and wherever we can. This holiday season, we’re hoping to brighten children’s smiles all across the metro Atlanta area by participating in Toys for Tots for the second year in a row.
The Toys for Tots goal is to “deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.“
We are excited to participate in this year’s toy drive. We’ve placed donation boxes in our corporate office and all of our model homes and hope you will join us in bringing joy to those less fortunate this Christmas season. Our donation drive lasts until December 20th.
To participate, bring a new, unwrapped toy to one of our donation boxes. Your toy donations can be for a boy or girl up to age 12. Once the toy drive ends, we’ll take the donation boxes to the Toys for Tots holding location, where they will be separated by age and gender and then distributed to children in the community with help from volunteers, local church groups and other agencies.
If you’re not able to come by to donate a toy, consider helping in other ways. You can go online to ToysforTots.org and choose from additional ways to donate, such as selling items on e-Bay, donating in memory or in honor and more.
Toys for Tots is a non-profit program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve that aims to collect new toys to distribute to families who are not able to afford Christmas on their own. Contact us for more information on our Toys for Tots donation drive, or stop by a model home near you today.
