Consolidated Carpet participates in annual toy drive

Consolidated Carpet associates with members of the United States Marine Corps celebrating a third straight successful Toys for Tots collection.

NEW YORK – Consolidated Carpet proudly announces the success of their third 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. Consolidated was proud to participate as a donation drop-off center in both of their offices, located in Manhattan and Carlstadt, New Jersey.

With toys ranging from stuffed animals to books to model cars, Toys for Tots provides children of all ages with toys to support them 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 452 million toys to 209 million needy children since 1947, with supplementation of nearly 98 million toys and promotional support of over $8.5 million from the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation in the past 19 years.

On December 17, 2012, two members of the United States Marine Corps picked up the toys at Consolidated’s New York Office. Consolidated Carpet collected over 130 toys, filling four large boxes. These toys generously provided by Consolidated Associates and local community members will be distributed to local children in the Tri-State Area.
