Over the past few weeks, the Apartment Association of Greater Dallas and the Apartment Association of Tarrant County tasked their members with raising money for the annual Marines Toys for Tots Toy Drive Campaign.
Despite COVID-19 and all the restrictions in place because of it, our members did not disappoint! They were able to raise over $76,000 in money that went directly to the purchase of toys. On top of that, the toys were priced wholesale which took the buying power much, much further. Part of the success of the toy buying experience was the ability to create an Amazon Wish List, which acts as a gift registry, in order to remove the tedious guesswork involved with buying toys.
In all, 10,000 toys were purchased and donated for this cause. That’s 10,000 children, who have no control over their station in life, that will receive a gift on Christmas day. What a major accomplishment!
Special thanks to the AATC Community Service Committee and chair, Wesley Chapman, Lowes -MSH, for all their hard work in conjunction with AAGD, to make this happen.
All AATC members can sign up to attend the AAGD-AATC Christmas Party & Toy Drive on December 8th at the Renaissance Dallas Addison Hotel. You can register here: https://www.aatcnet.org/events/aagdaatc-christmas-reception
