FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“It’s a Bear of a Toy Time!”
Burlington, NC, November 2020 – Dr. Roslyn Crisp and Associates is pleased and honored to support “Toys for Tots” program this year! This is our first year donating to toys for tots and we are doing it to help families most impacted by the financial effects of COVID this year.
Toys for Tots began in 1947 as the brain child of Marine Corps Reserve Major Bill Hendricks, it was his wife, Diane, who was the real inspiration. She had crafted a few handcrafted dolls and asked Bill to deliver them to an agency that supports children in need. When Bill reported back to his wife that he could not find such an organization, she instructed him to “start one!”. Maj Hendricks and the Marines in his reserve unit in LA collected and distributed 5,000 toys in 1947.
“The basic mission of the Marine Toys for Tots Program is to collect new unwrapped toys and distribute those toys to less fortunate children at Christmas.”
Presently, the Marine Toys for Tots Program distributes an average of 18 million toys to 7 million less fortunate children annually.
Due to COVID-19, we are going to make our goal easy for you to provide toys to support the Toys for Tots program. Dr. Roslyn Crisp and Associates are very aware of the COVID spread and tries to keep all safe. With that said the team will be doing a virtual gifting program this year.
