SBBCollege Santa Maria is hoping to bring a little holiday cheer to hundreds of less fortunate children by supporting the Toys for Tots project.
For the next month, the College will serve as a toy donation site for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve program. Each member of staff will also donate a toy to the initiative during the College’s company holiday party.
The College is calling for all people in the local community to bring some holiday cheer to a child by donating unwrapped toys and games to the Santa Maria Campus, located at 303 Plaza Dr.
Matthew Johnston, SBBCollege President, comments: ‘Every child deserves a Christmas present which is why we’re proud to support the program. Each year our employees donate around 200 toys, so by providing an additional collection point for the county we hope to donate even more this year.’
The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program aims to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to children in the community. Since launching in 1995, the program has distributed more than 469 million toys to 216 million children.
SBBCollege has been supporting the toy drive for over five years, as the College aims to give back to its community during the holiday season.
