Madison Parks joins the Toys for Tots Campaign

November 20, 2012

Donate new, unwrapped toys November 26 - December 10

Madison Parks is proud to join in support of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation by hosting collection sites at three locations:

1. Madison Parks Administration Office, City County Building
210 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Rm. 104
2. Olbrich Botanical Gardens, 3330 Atwood Avenue
3. Warner Park Community & Recreation Center, 1625 Northport Drive

Anyone can stop by one of these three drop sites to donate a new, unwrapped toy of any size.

"Madison Parks is pleased to be a part of a great program like Toys for Tots." says Kevin Briski, Madison Parks Superintendent. "By hosting three drop sites, we can help provide children of our community the opportunity to experience the joys of the holiday season."

Toys for Tots is a national charity program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve that aims to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute them to underprivileged children in Dane County. Madison Parks welcomes you to donate toys for collection in support of this program. The collection will begin on November 26 and the final day of collection will be Monday, December 10. Toys for kids of all ages are encouraged. All toys should be new and unwrapped.

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 51(c) (3) tax exempt not for profit charity, is the authorized fund raising and support organization for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. While the Marines coordinate and manage the program, the Foundation's success depends on the support of the local community and the generosity of people who donate toys.

Donations will be accepted at any of the Toys for Tots locations during their regular operating hours from November 26 to Monday, December 10.
