Port Charlotte, Lehigh Acres, Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Naples offices collecting toys through Dec. 15
For the 17th year, Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz, P.A. offices are collecting toys to be distributed by the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation. Toys will be collected through Dec. 15, when they will be picked up and distributed by Toys for Tots to approved local social welfare agencies, church groups and other organizations.
In 2022, Toys for Tots in Lee County distributed 47,572 toys to 27,064 children. In Collier County, Toys for Tots distributed 21,888 toys to 5,199 children. Coordinators pick up the donated toys and store them in central warehouses where the toys are sorted by age and gender. At Christmas, coordinators, with the assistance of local social welfare agencies, church groups and other local community agencies, distribute the toys to the less fortunate children of the community.
The public is invited to bring new, unwrapped toys for newborn children through age 12 to any of the five Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz offices. In addition, members of the firm also donate toys for the drive.
