Dec. 10, 2015—Federated Auto Parts has kicked off its annual Toys for Tots campaign in time for the holiday season.
“Federated kicked off the season in a big way by recently presenting a check for $264,000 to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign, but that’s not all,” said John Marcum, director of marketing for Federated. “Now through the holidays, participating Federated members are also collecting toys and monetary donations for the campaign. They have put together some terrific programs at the local level to make sure Christmas is a little brighter for those in need.”
Federated members Arnold Oil in Austin, Texas, and California-based Vaca Valley Auto Parts are collecting toys and donations and have created special promotional programs for their customers and employees. Another Federated member, Warehouse Inc. in Hays, Kan., is collecting toys at 82 locations in five states and is working with a local high school that has chosen Toys for Tots as the charity for its class project.
