Consolidated Carpet, based in New York, collected more than 125 toys for its second annual participation in the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program. This annual Holiday toy collection and distribution program serves to brighten the holiday season for local children in need by providing them with new toys.

From puzzles to books to board games, Toys for Tots provides children of all ages with toys in what can be a difficult time of the year for the less fortunate. The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has distributed more than 400 million toys to 188 million needy children over the past 62 years, with supplementation of nearly 81.3 million toys and promotional support of over $6.3 million from the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation in the past 18 years.

On Dec. 19, two members of the United States Marine Corps picked up the toys at Consolidated’s New York Office. Consolidated Carpet collected enough toys to fill five large boxes. These toys generously provided by Consolidated Associates and local community members will be distributed to local children in the Tri-State Area.
