AAGD/AATC Toys for Tots Event Raises $77,000!

The apartment associations of Greater Dallas and Tarrant County joined hands on Dec 12th at the Hotel Intercontinental in north Dallas and donated $77,000 worth of toys to the annual U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign. “It was heart-warming to see the amazing generosity of my colleagues,” said AATC president Sherry Jordan (LumaCorp). “Giving back to our communities is one of the most important things we work hard to accomplish.”

Each year, members from both associations go to Walmart and purchase all the toys at once. Makes for an exceptionally fun and exciting day; not to mention, a great economic boost for the store.

“You haven’t lived until you’ve $77,000 worth toys stacked in front of you. It’s a sight to behold!”, says Annie Williams, AATCs Director of Member Services.

All toys were loaded by attendees at the event where they will be distributed by U.S. Marines Toys for Tots.
