TGI’s Toys for Tots 2016 Holiday Drive
TGI’s Toys for Tots Holiday Drive was a huge success again this year! With your help, we made a significant difference in the lives of those less fortunate. The response from TGI employees, clients, business partners, friends, family, and communities was overwhelming.
The objective of the U.S Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future. Toys For Tots is considered a Top-Rated Charity. Over 97% of donations goes to providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children. Less than 3% is spent on fundraising and overhead.
All 10 of TGI’s locations were Toys for Tots Drop Off Locations. Each office collected unwrapped toys from November 1st till the end of December. The TGI Manhattan location hosted their annual breakfast where we donate a gift for each attendee. The guests also brought generous contributions. There were over 140 people that came to show their support! There are countless stories of generosity. We feel honored to be a part of something so impactful.
In order to increase the amount of gifts given, TGI offers a special opportunity each year to our clients and perspective clients. If they schedule an appointment with TGI to discuss their office solution needs, we donate a gift to Toys for Tots in their honor. Over the past 4 years over 3,000 toys were donated by this initiative!
