Teaming up with the Beverly High School Marine Corps Junior ROTC (MCJROTC), Net Atlantic has once again taken part in the annual Toys For Tots drive earlier this month. Our third successive year participating in this particular effort, we’ve enjoyed such a positive turnout with our first two fundraisers that we’ve made this an annual tradition for our winter giving efforts.
Thanks to the generosity of Net Atlantic employees, our Volunteer Committee was able to amass over fifty toys to be given to local children of all ages!
Toys for Tots began in 1947, when the wife of a Marine Officer made a doll and could not find an avenue to distribute it to a needy child. A national effort by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves to collect toys for under privileged children began through the Marine Officers efforts. Today, about 4 million children a year now receive the gifts, collected from gas stations, malls and offices all over the country. For more information, go to www.toysfortots.org.
