Press Release –
As the crispness of autumn gives way to the cold holiday season, good boys and girls anxiously await a visit from jolly old St. Nick. But for many children right here at home, and for reasons a child shouldn’t have to understand, sometimes Santa simply can’t make the trip.
Now in its 58th year, Toys for Tots has helped pick up the slack when Chris Cringle isn’t able to reach every child’s home. With operations in all 50 states, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve volunteers have collected toys for countless kids, from toddlers through teenagers.
This year, Polaris Industries is enlisting in the cause and hosting thousands of official drop-off sites for Toys for Tots donations at dealerships across the country.
The recreational vehicle manufacturer and its nationwide network of dealers have joined Toys for Tots in an effort to put smiles on the faces of less fortunate children during the holiday season. Polaris dealers nationwide will collect toys, and the company also will contribute $230,000 in donations.
“We are very honored to work with Toys for Tots and excited to help make the holidays better for underserved children,” said Tom Tiller, CEO Polaris Industries. “This year has been difficult for many families, but people can help by simply adding an extra toy to their holiday shopping list and dropping it at their local Polaris dealership.”
