It’s one of the best days of the year! A day to spend with family around a giant dinner table eating scrumptious food. But more than this, it’s a day to give thanks for everything we have been blessed for in life and to a day to give help to others.
This year Photographick Studios will be hosting a Toys for Tots drive! The Toys For Tots program provides toys to brighten the holiday season for children in local needy families. The overall program is run each year during the months of October-December.
Toys for Tots began in 1947 when U.S. Marine Corps Major Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children for Christmas. In 1948, the program expanded and became a nationwide campaign. As of 2009, the Toys for Tots program and foundation, has collected and distributed almost five hundred million toys. The program is now a national effort administered locally in Quantico, Virginia.
As a former U.S. Marine, Toys for Tots is especially near and dear to Sunny’s heart! We would love to offer our studio as an initial toy drop off point for all of our friends and clients! On December 21 we will bring the collection of toys to the Toys for Tots Washington DC head office. Toys donated should be new, unwrapped and preferably around the $10 or above price range. Please feel free to include a card or letter as well!
We are thankful for EVERYTHING that matters in life: To be loved by those you love. And we could not ask for more. We really do have the best clients, friends and family for this, we are thankful.
