Happy Holidays from all of us at Red Wing Richmond! It’s been quite a year, to say the least… but come hell or high water, you better believe we’re still doing our yearly Toys for Tots drive!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (and we wouldn’t blame you!) you know that the pandemic has caused massive layoffs to working families in Richmond and all over the country. There will be more kids than ever at risk of not having a toy under the tree this year. We need to help them!
When the Marines call, Red Wing Richmond answers. We’re continuing our dedication to giving back to the community that supports us by partnering with the United States Marine Corps in their annual Christmas Toys for Tots program!
Christmas is a special time of year, and it’s even more special for children. Each one deserves to have a toy under the tree, and the Marines have made it their mission to see that they do… and the USMC is not in the business of failing to complete their objective. However, they need your help!
The Marine Toys for Tots program is very simple. They just need you to bring toys to any of their designated drop-off locations in the greater Richmond metro area (all 3 of our stores.) Drop the toys off, and that’s it on your part! The Marines will collect these toys on December 15th. From there, they sort them out and distribute them to kids throughout the Richmond area that otherwise wouldn’t get a toy at all.
We love being a partner with the Marines for this awesome program, but we need your help! Next time you’re planning on trying on a pair of boots at our stores or getting your boots cleaned, considering bringing a toy with you to donate. It makes a world of difference!
Get in touch if you have questions! Feel free to send us a message on Facebook or contact us online. We genuinely appreciate you joining us to participate in 2020’s Marine Toy For Tots drive!
From all of us here at the Midlothian, Richmond, and Chester stores: Have a great holiday season, Richmond!← Stay Warm While You’re Working! Give the Gift of Red Wing Shoes! →
