The Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots campaign has been providing gifts to less fortunate boys and girls since 1948. What makes the program so great is that the donated toys are distributed to children in the communities in which they are donated. In 2015 alone, Frederick County’s Toys for Tots chapter distributed nearly 27,000 toys to area children.
Once again, CrossFit Frederick will participate in this campaign and we hope to exceed the massive amount of toys we were able to collect in previous years. The generosity of our members is truly amazing!
This year, we’d like to thank our members for their kindness and encourage even more toy donations by offering a chance to win a one month unlimited membership to CrossFit Frederick ($175 value). For each toy donated, the member gets one entry to win the membership prize. So, if you donate 25 toys, you get 25 chances to win.
Donations/entries into the drawing will be accepted beginning November 12th and will end on December 12th. Donation entries and the drawing bucket will be at the front desk. One winner will be drawn from the donation entries on December 14th.
The Marine Corps Toys for Tots program accepts new, unwrapped gifts for boys and girls up to age 12. The only prohibited items are realistic looking toy guns and food items. If you’d like more information, click here.
In previous years, many members have included batteries taped to their donated toys for the toys that require them. What better way to make sure a child can immediately enjoy their gift?
