ABF U-Pack Sponsors Toys For Tots Christmas Charity Event

ABF U-Pack Moving service centers in Pennsylvania participated in two local Toys for Tots Christmas charity parades. ABF U-Pack donated the use of ReloCubes for collection and transportation of donations accepted during each parade, benefitting the regional Toys for Tots program. 

The United States Marine Corps Reserve is well known for operating the Toys for Tots program, a Christmas charity event that gives new toys to underprivileged children during the holidays. By providing the use of two moving containers to hold donations during the annual drive, U-Pack was able to participate in the mid-Pennsylvania Toys for Tots campaign for the second year in a row.  

Because of the overwhelming amount of toys donated by generous citizens, portable storage is a necessity to safely house the toys until they can be distributed. The program has continued to expand each year, and the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation welcomes any support that will help organize the popular event.  ABF U-Pack provided ReloCubes in Camp Hill, PA and in downtown Carlisle, PA to be filled with new toys. The collected toys are then given to less fortunate children so they can experience the joys of Christmas.

"One of the main objectives of the Toys for Tots program is to convey a message of hope," explained U-Pack Manager Kay Lynn Clay. "U-Pack can support that mission by helping to make the logistics of the Christmas charity drive a little easier, and we're honored to have the opportunity to lend a hand." ABF U-Pack delivered moving containers for use at the November 27th Toys for Tots Parade in Carlisle, as well as the December 4th parade in Camp Hill.

The Toys for Tots program began in 1947 when a Marine Reservist discovered the need for an agency that would provide toys to children in families experiencing a hardship during Christmastime. Since its inception, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots has presented over 400 million toys to more than 188 million children.
