PODS® announces partnership with Toys for Tots for fifth year
PODS® Announces Partnership with Toys for Tots for Fifth Year and donations will help U.S. Marine Corp collect toys for children in 2014
PODS has provided containers to hold the gifts collected during holiday toy drives in each of the last four years. Most recently, 483 PODS® containers were delivered to the U.S. Marine Corps toy drive across the United States--at an estimated value of $347,000. PODSmade an additional donation to the cause by contributing one dollar for every 10 “likes” it received on its Facebook page.
“We’re incredibly thankful for our relationship with PODS,” says retired Marine Maj. Bill Grein, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “With their generous logistic support, we were able to save tens of thousands of dollars. They are an instrumental part of us being able to fulfill the Christmas dreams of over 6.7 million less fortunate children.”
Since its inception 66 years ago, the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program has distributed more than 469 million toys to children across the United States who might not otherwise receive anything during the holiday season.
