Garber Chevrolet Linwood teamed up with Toys for Tots to make sure all children in the Bay County have a happy holiday season by hosting a toy collection drive. With help from businesses in the surrounding area, Garber Linwood filled an entire 2017 Chevy Silverado truck bed full of new toys to give in only eight days and a U.S. Marine Corps Reserve private came to collect them.
Donations were brought in from Frank’s Great Outdoors, Williams Cheese, Owen Moore Insurance Agency, Garber Linwood’s rep Jeanne from AutoTrader, Paintbull/ColorTech Paint Services and many individual donations from local friends and family. We more than accomplished our goal of a truck bed full and collected more in 8 days than we would have expected out of a whole month of donations!
Garber Chevrolet Linwood is committed to improving the Bay County community and its residents’ lives in as many ways as possible. We strive to be more than just your local dealership – but also a pillar of the community, leading the way in volunteerism and generosity. Plans are being made for next year’s collection already, so please contact us if you’d like to collect in your office to donate with us next year.
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve has been running the Toys for Tots program since 1947 and has impacted countless lives locally and nationally. They are accepting donations until Christmas Day, and there is more information on their website about your closest donation spot. Monetary donations are also greatly appreciated.
