Coosa Valley Credit Union makes donation to Toys for Tots...

Coosa Valley Credit Union has made a donation in the name of the company groups it serves to the Toys for Tots foundation to help support their 2011 campaign. Toys for Tots began in 1947, when Major Bill Hendricks, USCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. The idea came from Bill’s wife, Diane. Marines have conducted successful nationwide campaigns at Christmas each year since 1948. The initial objective that remains the hallmark of the program today is to “bring the joy of Christmas to America’s needy children” and since its beginning, the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has distributed more than 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children. Walt Disney designed the Toys for Tots logo, which is used today. Ron Tomlinson President/CEO of Coosa Valley Credit Union stated “The Toys for Tots foundation is one of our favorite groups. Not only do they make a difference in the lives of so many children at Christmas, but the organization is run and manned by volunteers. All money raised goes right back to the children of our community. Coosa Valley Credit Union also has donation boxes at each branch if you wish to make a donation of a new unwrapped toy.” Ken Futch retired Marine and local Toys for Tots Coordinator stated “We appreciate this and all donations made to Toys for Tots this holiday season.”
