Oct. 9, 2013—Several Federated Auto Parts locations have already begun collecting toys and donations, as well as holding special events, on behalf of the 2013 U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign.
The donations will be presented to retired Marine Lieutenant General Pete Osman, president and CEO of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, on Nov. 5 at the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas.
Earlier this year, Federated members and suppliers raised $135,000 for Toys for Tots during the annual Federated Toys for Tots auction held during the group’s annual awards dinner. Additional funds were raised at hospitality events held at the recent Federated Auto Parts 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup race.
“We are thrilled that so many Federated members are participating in the Toys for Tots campaign,” said Mike Schultz of Federated Auto Parts.
Toy donations can be made at participating Federated Auto Parts stores and financial donations can be made on Federated’s website.
