Milton CAT's Annual Toys for Tots Campaign

Through our annual Toys for Tots campaign, Milton CAT helped create Christmas Magic for local less fortunate children.
 
Here at Milton CAT, we have been extremely fortunate and want to give back to our local community as often as possible. We have had the privilege to participate in the Toys for Tots campaign for over 20 years. Although this year was different due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our campaign was as successful as ever and many children received the gift of hope for Christmas thanks to the generosity of Chris Milton, our Marines and faithful employees.
 
The United States Marines are dedicated to saving lives and helping others. Through the Toys for Tots program, Marines can play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children.
 
For many years, Milton CAT’s campaign has taught us how impactful receiving a gift during the holidays can be on a child’s life. Many of us take opening gifts on Christmas morning for granted, but for economically disadvantaged children, receiving a present is a tangible sign of hope.
 
Our campaign operated slightly different this holiday season to accommodate the unique circumstances of Covid-19. Along with strategically placed donation boxes to ensure social distancing, a GoFundMe site was created so all employees could participate in a safe manner.
 
Despite the challenges that the virus presented, we received new unwrapped presents and raised a massive $3,225 through donations to the GoFundMe site. The outstanding kindness and generosity of our employees allowed us to bring joy to several less fortunate children throughout our area.
 
The funds raised were used by United States Marine Corps Veterans Thomas J. Beder and Scott Swann to purchase as many toys as possible. With their trucks packed with presents, they made multiple trips to drop toys off. A wide variety of high-quality toys were bought so children could be surprised no matter their interests.
 
The overall impact of the 2020 Worcester County Toys for Tots campaign was massive. We are extremely proud that Milton CAT played such a large role in bringing joy to thousands of local families.
 
Thank you to our Veteran USMC employees for organizing this impactful campaign. And thank you to all our employees for their generosity in helping us make the holidays memorable for so many economically disadvantaged children.
