The Group Collecting Toys And Donations For Toys For Tots

More than $3 million raised and thousands of toys donated to-date.

As in years past, participating members the Automotive Parts Services Group (The Group) are collecting toys and monetary donations on behalf of the 2021 U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign at their respective locations.

“This is the 10th consecutive year we have been involved with the Toys for Tots campaign, and we are excited to continue what has become a year-long charitable endeavor for our members and their customers,” said John Marcum, director of marketing, Federated Auto Parts. “Our members and vendor partners have really made a difference over the years with their generosity and support of the program. As we do every year, we want to thank the Federated and Pronto Network members and supplier partners for continually making our Toys for Tots campaign a big success.”

Since partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program in 2012, The Group, its members and vendor partners have helped raise more than $3 million for Toys and Tots and The Group is looking to add to that total this holiday season. 

In addition to toy donations at participating locations, financial contributions can be made online by visiting The Group website at http://www.thegroupapsg.com/toys-for-tots.html and clicking on “Make a Donation.” Donors can use a credit card securely or print out a form and mail it with a check made payable to Toys for Tots. 

“All donations made online or at The Group locations are distributed in the area where the toys and money are collected, allowing our members to help provide a Merry Christmas for deserving children in their own communities,” said Marcum. “Every year, our members have a shared goal of making the Christmas season a little brighter for those in need.”
