As we’re getting ready for warm cozy times with our loved humans and animals (and don’t forget the toys!)… not everyone is so lucky. Parents across the Macomb County region are worrying about how they are going to make that Christmas magic this year, and put presents under the tree. Gratefully, there’s a bevy of Marines who are collecting, organizing, and doing all the administrative work needed to get toys ready for kiddos who wouldn’t have them otherwise for Christmas. Santa has a lot of elves, many who are much bigger than you might expect! I’m talking about the USMC Toys for Tots effort. For the 3rd year in a row, Sarge & Red’s is partnering with Toys for Tots to help delight as many little humans as we can. John is a former Marine, and we have been foster parents, so this organization is very dear to our hearts! So, we are encouraging our customers to donate new unwrapped toys. We have a donation box at the shop… and to sweeten it even more; well, what’s better than happy kids… YOUR kiddos being extra happy when you win the $200 gift card to Sarge & Reds. For each toy worth $20 or more that you donate to Toys for Tots you’ll be entered into our raffle to win a $200 gift card, or a Sarge & Red’s t-shirt.
That didn’t feel like enough – we have toys at our fingertips every day. An idea sprung to life – we are reaching out to businesses in the community to offer business sponsorships for Toys for Tots donations. It’s easy, the business sponsors a donation to Toys for Tots of $100 – $1,000 (or more) and we’ll provide the toys at cost in your name! To show our appreciation “Crazy Sarge” will post a special video shout out for each donor on Instagram and Facebook. This gets your business name in front of a new audience too, in addition to helping kiddos and working with a small local business – everyone wins!
Let us make spreading holiday cheer a little easier and go a bit further this year:
- More toys for your dollar; this opportunity allows you to get toys at cost, not retail.
- Visibility – “Crazy Sarge” will do a special video on Instagram & Facebook for you & your business! (get your name in front of a different audience)
- Local community business partnership
- Save some precious time during the busy season, let us do the shopping for you!
