Kalispell VW Partners With Toys for Tots!

November 5th, 2021 by

Flathead Valley, we need your help as the giving season is upon us. Join us in helping our local Marines with their Toys for Tots drive. Please help us by dropping off any new unwrapped toys or by giving a cash donation. Once again, Kalispell Volkswagen, Ford, and Toyota will match cash donations dollar for dollar up to $1,000 per donation. Cash donations will be used to purchase even more gifts!

Toys For Tots Mission

“The mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is to assist the U. S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas. This assistance includes providing day-to-day leadership and oversight of the program and raising funds to supplement the collections of local campaigns. In addition, to provide promotional material, and defray the costs of conducting annual campaigns.”

Gift Ideas

The drive focuses on giving gifts to children ranging from 1 year old to 12 years old. Though many communities do extend the age group to pre-teens and teens. “Popular toy categories include sporting equipment, books, backpacks, board games, cars/trucks, and hand-held electronics. We ask you to please not donate anything that looks like realistic weapons or food items.”

Volunteer

Our local community is always looking for volunteers to help that be being sorting toys, or simply helping with planning. “In 2020, there were 2,053 kids that received toys in the Flathead Valley! This program wouldn’t exist without the community support.” If you would like to know more about the program and how you can volunteer reach out to Kelly at 406-471-9299, or Jamie at 406-471-0543.
