Jay’s Fabric Center is hosting a holiday toy donation drive for Toys for Tots as part of the NALA’s collective cause marketing program, which encourages business across the country to collect at the same time. New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off at 801 Pasadena Ave. S., St. Petersburg, until Dec. 14, during store hours.
“I am honored to do my part for Toys for Tots. We want to show children in need they are not forgotten at Christmas, or at any time,” said Arthur Jay, owner of Jay’s Fabric Center. “I encourage anyone to participate by simply donating a toy for this worthy cause.”
Toys for Tots, whose mission is to collect new, unwrapped toys each holiday season and distribute them as Christmas gifts to children in need, is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, which distributes toys to children who may not otherwise receive a gift for Christmas.
Toys for Tots plays an active role in developing one of our nation’s most valuable resources, its children. It also unites members of local communities in a common cause each year during its annual toy collection and distribution campaign. Toys for Tots was founded in 1947, and since its inception the Marines have distributed over 530,000,000 toys to more than 244,000,000 children across the United States.
Jay’s Fabric Center’s collection of fabrics start with the finest of 100 percent cotton in a large selection of designs, such as Dots, Stripes, Chevrons, Batiks, Foods, Beachy, Tropical, Sports, Children, Animals, Camping, Music, Sewing, Insects, Florals, and more.
