Orlando, Florida General Contractor Participates in 2017 Holiday Program

Orlando, FL, January 18, 2018 --( Roger B. Kennedy Construction collected and donated a truckload of toys for the 2017 U.S. Marines’ Toys for Tots Program this past holiday season. On December 11, a U-Haul truck delivered nine giant boxes of new toys and seven new bicycles, plus $300 in cash/gift card donations that allowed the Marines to purchase even more toys. Toys for Tots is a program of the United States Marine Corps Reserve that spreads joy each Christmas by distributing toys to underprivileged children.

Roger B. Kennedy, Jr., President of Roger B. Kennedy Construction, stated, “We were thrilled to participate in the 2017 U.S. Marines’ Toys for Tots program. Many are unaware that there is a high concentration of homeless children in Central Florida, and if not for Toys for Tots, these kids would not have received any gifts for Christmas. Supporting Toys for Tots gave us all an opportunity to help local kids enjoy a better holiday.”
