Federated Auto Parts to Kick Off Toys For Tots Drive
Aug. 22, 2014—Federated Auto Parts will begin collecting toys and donations for Toys for Tots during the 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sept. 6, the company announced Thursday.
The event, which will take place at the Richmond International Raceway, marks the start of the official Federated Toys for Tots drive this year, but some members have already started collecting.
“The Federated 400 is the ideal venue for us to kick off the Toys for Tots fundraising season,” said John Marcum, director of marketing for Federated Auto Parts. “We will have several Marines on hand at Richmond International Raceway to lead the effort. Last year, thanks to our members, customers and manufacturing partners, we collected over 4,000 toys and raised over $190,000 for Toys for Tots and we are already well on our way to another outstanding fundraising year.”
Financial contributions to the Federated charity fundraiser can be made at its Toys for Tots site.
