Goodyear, U.S. Marine Corps Reserve To Host 10th Annual Toys For Tots Events

AKRON, Ohio, Nov. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Goodyear and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve are partnering for the tenth consecutive year in support of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation at the company's airship bases in Florida and Ohio. The Goodyear Blimp events will provide the public with an opportunity to donate to Toys for Tots while enjoying an up close and personal view of the blimp inside the hangar.

Beginning Dec. 1 and continuing through Dec. 11, toy donations will be accepted at select Goodyear Auto Service Center locations in Florida and Ohio. Additionally, Dec. 3 through Dec. 13, Goodyear Toys for Tots drop-off locations are expanding to Roll by Goodyear locations in D.C. Metro and Greater Philadelphia, offering donors $10 back on a tire alignment when a toy is donated in-store.* Additional details on store locations is available below and on www.goodyearblimp.com.  

Donors are required to follow Goodyear's COVID-19 protocols, including wearing a mask while on property, social distancing guidelines and having toys in the trunk of your vehicle. Goodyear will be hosting drive-thru donation events at the Ohio and Florida bases. On Dec. 11, 12 and 13, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Ohio visitors can drive through the Wingfoot Lake blimp hangar to drop off their donation to a U.S. Marine representing Toys for Tots. The Florida drive-thru event will take place on Dec. 12 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. These events are free and open to the public, with all attendees required to follow locally mandated guidelines and precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Toys can also be shipped to Goodyear's hangars through Dec. 8 for contactless donation. Toys being donated must be new and in the original packaging to be accepted.

"So much has changed this year in our communities and it's critical that we continue to find ways to support them through safe and unique experiences like this," said Laura Duda, Goodyear's senior vice president and Chief Communications Officer.  "Through our Toys for Tots support over the past decade, we have expanded on our strong relationship with the U.S. Marine Corps, and we are pleased to continue delivering much-needed donations of toys to the children who need them most, especially right now."

2020 marks the tenth year of the collaboration between Goodyear and the Marines for events at its airship bases in Ohio and Florida, which have collectively delivered almost 150,000 toys and nearly $500,000 to benefit Toys for Tots to date.

"We are very pleased to welcome Goodyear back for their 10th year as a National Corporate Sponsor of the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign," said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. "Their community service goals certainly align with those the Marine Corps has promoted for over 72 years through our Toys for Tots Program." Silvester concluded, "With their generous support we will be able to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of thousands of less fortunate children who otherwise might be forgotten."

Goodyear first nicknamed one of its blimps the "Santa Claus Express" in 1927 to spread holiday cheer across the skies of America. The company has a long history of community involvement and volunteerism within its corporate social responsibility program, Goodyear Better Future. Goodyear Better Future initiatives and Goodyear Airship Operations support collaborative programs, such as the Toys for Tots Foundation and community organizations to drive positive outcomes for the community.

Founded in 1948, it is the mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December and distribute these toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

The Ohio Goodyear airship base is located at 841 Wingfoot Lake Rd., Mogadore, Ohio 44260.

The Florida Goodyear airship base is located at 1500 NE 5th Ave, Pompano Beach, FL 33060.
