Toys for Tots: Help iGo Support Kids in Need!

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” – Aesop

At InspectionGo, we’re always looking for ways to give back. With the holidays right around the corner, there are so many opportunities to get involved in the community. This year, we’re celebrating the holidays with Toys for Tots!

InspectionGo will be serving as a Toys for Tots drop-off location from now until December 7. We’re collecting new, unwrapped toys for kids ages 0-18. The gifts will be given to less fortunate children around Blair County. All are welcome to donate at iGo headquarters!

Jen Schultz, one of our wonderful Customer Service Reps, organized our partnership with Toys for Tots. “I really wanted to get involved with our community, and do something special for the holidays,” she says. “I wanted to work with Toys for Tots because they keep it local. The donations are going right back into the community, which is pretty amazing.” 

Toys for Tots is a program run by the Marine Corps Reserve. Their mission is to provide toys to children whose families cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas. Last year, the program distributed 19 million toys to children throughout the country.

“We had 500 applicants this year,” Jen says, “but that’s just the number of families. There could be 2,000 children within that number. That’s a lot of gifts we need! We rented out a warehouse in the Logan Valley Mall that will be used to store and sort the toys. The room was donated, too! It’s so nice to see the community come together for a good cause.”

Giving back is so important to all of us here at InspectionGo. “We believe the more we give back to a community, the more we can encourage others to get involved. We want to inspire other people to give back, as well,” says Jen. 

Toys for Tots would not be possible without the support of the local community and the generosity of those who donate. We know money can be tight this time of year, but the smallest gift can bring so much happiness! 

We love our hometown and all the people in it. Help us make our community a little brighter this holiday season!
