Toys can be dropped off at the Wireless Zone located at 5 Wilkins Station Road in Medford.
Wireless Zone, a Verizon Authorized Retailer, is once again partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots campaign and will feature collection bins at its Medford store during the upcoming holiday season. The Toys for Tots campaign delivers new toys during Christmas to less fortunate children in every community it serves. Toys can be dropped off at the Wireless Zone located at 5 Wilkins Station Road in Medford.
“We are honored to partner with a tremendously impactful organization like Toys for Tots,” said Dave Staszewski, Executive Vice President of Wireless Zone. “We are constantly looking for ways to support our local communities, especially during the holiday season, and the opportunity to once again support Toys for Tots by providing donation bins in our stores is one way we can make the holidays more special for less fortunate families in each community.”
In 2017, Wireless Zone contributed to the millions of toys that Toys for Tots distributed to less fortunate children nationwide with the goal of delivering a message of hope to our young generations. Marine Corps Toys for Tots has been listed as a top charity in the Philanthropy 400, earned a Charity Navigators four-star rating, and was accredited by the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance.
Despite the success of Wireless Zone’s 2017 Toys for Tots support campaign, the need only continues to grow. With more than 15 million American children now living below the poverty line, donations are even more critical during the 2018 holiday season. Toys for Tots is aiming to break last year’s donation record through expanded partnerships with community-minded organizations like Wireless Zone. There are limited restrictions to what can and cannot be donated; the organization simply asks that you would consider what might be an appropriate gift for your own child/relative and to consider gifts appropriate for older children as well as toddlers.
“We encourage each of our customers to bring a toy donation with them on their next visit to Wireless Zone,” said Bernadette Anderson, Regional Franchise Director at Wireless Zone. “When customers walk through our door with a toy in their hand, we feel proud to be the place they come to donate gifts. It’s a moment for us just as much as it will be for the children who receive the gifts on Christmas morning, and we look forward to helping make this year’s Toys for Tots campaign the most successful one yet.”
