Seattle Mover Neighbors Moving and Storage Announces 5th Annual Toys for Tots Campaign(December 04, 2013)
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) December 04, 2013
Once again this holiday season, Neighbors Moving and Storage Seattle, is partnering with Toys for Tots Foundation, a national not for profit organization that collects new toys for economically disadvantaged children, to provide joy and a message of hope during the Holiday Season.
At the KIRO 7 News offices on December 6th, the Neighbors Moving trucks, movers and staff will be available to help collect and deliver toys and help the community give to those in need.
Tukwilla residents are also invited to drop off new, unwrapped toys and gifts at the Neighbors Moving Tukwilla headquarters, anytime during business hours, up until Dec 14, at which time Neighbors Moving trucks will take the toys to the US Marine Corps volunteers for local distribution.
Toys for Tots does not publish an official list of requested toys, instead people are encouraged to donate the same gifts they would pick for their own children or young relatives. All toys should be brand new and in original packaging, and can include books, games and sports equipment. Toys collected will be distributed through local charities and to hospital pediatric wards in the Seattle area.
At Neighbors Moving Seattle, we love the opportunity to make our neighborhood a bit happier this holiday season. We feel its both a privilege and a responsibility, and our staff is happy and enthusiastic to be part of it. As a former Marine, I really enjoy getting involved with Toys for Tots each year. Its such wonderful organization - and our community is so generous. Every year we collect a great deal of toys and gifts that will brighten someones Christmas morning. Come out and meet us at the KIRO 7 news offices on Dec 6th. Bring a toy if you can, and let Seattle know you care, said Joe Tranisi, former Marine and Neighbors Moving company president and founder.
Toys for Tots unites our community every Christmas in our goal to provide a cherished memory to those in need during the holiday season. All our employes are active in spreading the word about Toys for Tots, and each year, more and more people show up with donations. We are proud and touched to witness this generosity, said Randy Peacock, a manager at Neighbors Moving Seattle.
