MIDDLEBURY, Ind., July 14, 2023 – Grand Design Recreational Vehicles has announced in a press release the company’s 2nd annual Christmas in July toy drive to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. The goal of the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots program is to help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children through the gift of a new toy.
The toy drive will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. EST on July 22 at Grand Design RV’s customer service and support center, located at 5200 Hoffman St., in Elkhart, Ind. Food trucks will be on-site and will accept cash donations. Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus will also be attending to support the cause. Photo opportunities will be available.
If community members want to participate but are unsure what to donate, Grand Design RV has created a Christmas in July Amazon Buyers Guide. Toys donated will directly benefit children in Elkhart County and the surrounding area. Only new and/or unwrapped toys will be accepted. Neither toy guns, bows, nor arrows will be accepted for donation.
Since 1947, the Toys for Tots program has assisted over 272 million children. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not-for-profit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the program. Grand Design RV invites the community to come and enjoy the fun on July 22 at the customer service and support center.
