The holidays are right around the corner, are you ready? Landisville PA is home to many amazing community members and we find it most important to help them finish out the year. Whether it is finding the right storage solutions for holiday decor or the best ways to give back, S’more Space Storage has the answers.
As we finish out another year, add an extra toy to your holiday shopping list to help us give back. This year we are working with Toys for Toys. Many know this organization helps kids in need but they do so much more then this. They give families hope, kids a role model, and inspiration for communities nationwide.
They started in 1947 when Major Bill Hendricks started the first toy drive. With the help of neighbors and businesses the first campaign was a success. They gave over 5,000 toys to kids who needed a little kindness during the month of December. The very first toy given was a handmade doll and the rest is history. The United States Marine Corps Reserve took over the toy drive after the first year. Now every USMCR office is home base for Toys for Tots.
Last year was the organizations second best year since the beginning in 1947. Many government officials recognize this foundation and support them from the start of the drive in October to the end of December. Once the new year starts the USMCR heads out to UPS Stores in the hopes they will work together to supply under funded schools with the proper reading material. At the end of 2016, they ended the literacy drive with 1.5 million books donated. With everyone helpping they can make this the best year yet.
A special thank you goes out to everyone who donated a new unwrapped toy. Toys for Tots is a powerful organization and we are excited to work with them.
