ARLINGTON, Texas – Dec. 1, 2022 – For 75 years the Marine Corp Reserves have provided toys to children in need at Christmas throughout the U.S. As a proud supporter of Toys for Tots and in honor of the 75th anniversary, the Texas Trust Gives Foundation gave $7,500 to the organization.
The donation was delivered at the annual toy drive held at the Dr. Jim Vaszauskas Center for the Performing Arts in Mansfield.
For 11 years Texas Trust has partnered with Mansfield ISD and Toys for Tots to provide toys for Christmas to families in need. Along with the cash donation, Texas Trust delivered more than 200 toys that it collected through the credit union’s branches from employees, members, and the community, plus $2,000 worth of bikes provided by the foundation.
The annual toy drive at the performing arts center is a favorite holiday event with food, live performances, and musical entertainment for the entire family.
“With the cost of everyday things skyrocketing there are a growing number of families having to make tough financial decisions,” said Washima Huq, Executive Director of the Texas Trust Gives Foundation. “Toys for Tots helps those families meet their children’s Christmas wishes by ensuring every child has a special toy with their name on it under the tree.”
Huq added, “Texas Trust has been blessed by the loyal support of its members. Giving to Toys for Tots is one way we are able to share that blessing through the foundation.”
