Greensboro, NC, December 02, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- This holiday season, Crown Honda of Greensboro, an award-winning Honda dealership, is proud to team up with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to collect toys for the Toys for Tots Foundation. The Toys for Tots Foundation seeks to provide a tangible sign of hope to economically-disadvantaged children in the community during Christmas.
Due to the overwhelming donation of toys the past two years, Crown Honda of Greensboro is excited to serve as a Toys for Tots drop-off location for the third straight year. This year, the dealership’s goal is to fill two Honda Ridgeline trucks to the brim with toys.
“Last year, we filled one Honda Ridgeline truck, but this year I’m confident we can get to two,” said Jeff Hicks, general manager of Crown Honda of Greensboro. “Every child deserves the opportunity to experience the magic of the holidays, and I encourage the Triad community to come together for Toys for Tots so that we can meet our goal. Help us make a child’s dream come true!”
If you would like to participate, please bring a new, unwrapped toy to the dealership showroom at 3633 West Wendover Ave. in Greensboro by December 14, 2011.

Now in its 64th year, Toys for Tots provides joy and a message of hope to less fortunate children through the gift of a new toy or book during the Christmas holiday season. These gifts offer children hope, recognition and a positive memory that they will cherish for a lifetime. Many of the gifts the Foundation provides, such as books, games and sports equipment, make a significant contribution to the educational, social and recreational development of these children. In 2010, Marines distributed gifts to 7.2 million children in over 700 communities nationwide.
