TOWSON, MD (December 4, 2018) –– As shoppers head to the stores or online over the next few weeks to do their holiday shopping, AAA Mid-Atlantic hopes they’ll consider adding a gift to donate to Toys for Tots.
The auto club is proud to serve as a public donation site for the Marine Corps Toys for Tots gift drive to benefit local children in need. AAA members and the general public may bring a new, unwrapped toy to AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Hagerstown store at 1580 Wesel Blvd. in the Valley Park Commons now through December 12.
“AAA is known for its legendary emergency roadside rescues, insurance and travel services, but we are also concerned about those in need throughout our communities,” said Amy Moore, Retail Manager for AAA Mid-Atlantic’s Hagerstown store. “We hope Marylanders will join us to help brighten a child’s holiday by donating a new toy.”
According to the Toys for Tots official website, all toys should remain unwrapped for donation. Gifts are accepted for children up to 16 years old. Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will not be distributed.
