Well, this year's Eighth Annual Christmas Toy Drive is over and we want to make sure that everyone knows how much we appreciate you all! So thanks to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, Bast Alpha Garrison, Dagobah Base "Rebel Legion Louisiana and Mississippi" and the Louisiana Ghostbusters and Toys "R" Us corporate for all your effort in this year's record breaking toy drive! We couldn't do it with out you!
The final totals are in and to say this year's drive was amazing is a gross understatement. We had already broken our single day record last week by collecting over 240 items (our previous was 203) - and yesterday we demolished that record by collecting over 320 items!! Not only is that astonishing - but the total for this year's drive is over 560 items worth over $5,800, crushing our 2010 high of 356 items!
So thank you again to everyone who participated in the drives this year - without you, we wouldn't be able to collect anything and we appreciate all your efforts every year!
Lastly, we once again are humbled with the generosity that can be found here and want to thank every person who donated this year, thank you so much! Your donations will make lots of families happy this year! So we hope everyone has a great holiday season and can't wait for next year!
Once again it's coming up on the holidays and that means it's time for our Eighth Annual Christmas Toy Drive! This year we will once again be working with the local Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. This year, we will once again have both toy drives at the Toys R Us main store in the Siegen Marketplace, on 11/15/2014 and 11/22/2014 from 10am - 4pm.
Over the last seven years, this event has brought in over $18,000 worth of donations and it always amazes us every year how generous people can be - especially when Darth Vader is there to persuade them to donate! We couldn’t do this event every year without the great support of the members of the Bast Alpha Garrison (The 501st Legion), the Dagobah Base "Rebel Legion Louisiana and Mississippi" and the Louisiana Ghostbusters who come out and costume to help us get donations - so we're looking forward to see how much we can get donated this year!
So share this event, pass out some fliers, come out to one of our drives and buy a toy to donate to Toys for Tots and bring your camera to get a picture with your favorite Star Wars and Ghostbusters characters!
