Federated Auction Raises $272,000 for Toys for Tots
July 6, 2016—Federated Auto Parts announced Tuesday that it raised $272,000 for Toys for Tots in an auction at the group’s national meeting and awards dinner.
Members and suppliers shattered the previous group fundraising record for the U.S. Marine Corps program.
“The generosity of Federated members and supplier partners is unsurpassed. We want to thank all of them for their incredible kind-heartedness, making our annual Toys for Tots auction another huge success,” said Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “Everyone associated with Federated, whether members, Car Care customers or vendors, has shown strong support of the Toys for Tots campaign and for that we are very thankful.”
“The holiday season is off to a great start and we haven’t even hit the dog days of summer yet,” Bishop said. “Many of our members and their customers have already begun Toys for Tots collections in their own areas, so we look forward to making another record-breaking donation to Toys for Tots in December.”
