Fw: Thank you for your generous donation to Toys for Tots
Marine Toys for Tots FoundationAhoy Members and Friends,Let me take this opportunity to wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas!This year the council contributed to Toys for Tots online. The form asked if the gift was in honor of someone and I indicated YES - the American Merchant Marine Veterans and specifically identified our friends in the Golden Gate Chapter. If you are interested in making a personal online contribution visit http://toysfortots.org.Next year we will fold our council's involvement with Toys for Tots into our budding Youth Activities program. For the physical collection of toys, the council's main collection drive will be early. Our 3rd quarter 3rd Monday luncheon meeting in September, 20 September 2010, is the logical time and date since our Annual Meeting, the 3rd Monday in December, is a bit late to collect and distribute toys before Christmas.Heave Ho!Phelps____________________________________----- Original Message -----To: pmmc@...Sent: Thursday, December 24, 2009 8:34 AMSubject: Thank you for your generous donation to Toys for Tots
- Dear Phelps,
Toys For Tots is one of my philanthrophies. Last Year I had a banner made 4ft X 20ft ($971.00) and collected 4,200 toys. This year we collected over 4,000 toys. Kerry

Dear Phelps and Kerry,
From the bottom of my heart, from our volunteers, and from the many children we were able to deliver toys to ... thank you!
I don't even have the final count of just how many toys were distributed yet, but I simply couldn't wait to let you know how deeply grateful I am for your support of Toys for Tots this year!
In a year in which we feared the worst, friends like you came through and made sure millions of children in need received a new toy this Christmas, both through monetary donations AND through our toy drop-off locations around the country.
But most importantly, the children touched by Toys for Tots received an important message ... people really do care.
Phelps, thank you for helping us deliver that important message and for being the Santa we needed to ensure that children had a reason to smile on Christmas...and all year long!
Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend, Phelps!
