November 26, 2018 - - As shoppers head to the stores and take to cyberspace to do their holiday shopping this holiday season, AAA Oklahoma hopes they’ll consider adding a gift to donate to Toys for Tots. AAA Oklahoma is pleased to serve as a public donation site to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots gift drive to benefit local children in need.

 

AAA members, our associates and the general public may bring a new, unwrapped toy to one of these AAA Oklahoma stores now through December 16:

 

  • 3549 W. Memorial Rd., OKC
  • 6163 N. May Ave., OKC
  • 1017 24th Ave., N.W., Norman

 

“Oklahomans know AAA for emergency roadside rescues, insurance and travel services,” says Leslie Gamble, manager of Public and Government Affairs, “but we are also concerned about those in need throughout our communities. We thought that since our associates are already contributing to Toys for Tots, why not open it up to those who drive by our convenient locations in Oklahoma cities.”

 

According to the Toys for Tots official website, all toys should remain unwrapped for donation. Gifts are accepted for children up to 16 years old. Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will not be distributed.

 

About The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation

Toys for Tots, a national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to economically disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of nearly 7 million less fortunate children in over 790 communities nationwide. Visit www.toysfortots.org.
