Toys For Tots: Donate Presents to A Child In Need

Published on Nov 18, 2022 by Talia Mushinsky

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from our team to you! Together with Toys For Tots, the Kunes family wishes to share the joy, fun, and excitement that this time of year brings.

 

How It All Started:  75 years ago, US Marine Reserve Major Bill Hendricks was tasked by his wife with finding an organization that would donate toys to children in need; he was surprised that no such organization existed.  In response to this, Major Hendricks formed the Toys For Tots Foundation with the help of his fellow comrades.

The Mission:  To assist the U.S. Marine Corps in providing a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas.

The Objective:  To help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources - our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to improving communities in the future.

 

How You Can Help:  Toys For Tots boxes can be found at several of our dealerships in Wisconsin and Illinois.  Please do not gift wrap your donations and leave them in the original packaging.  

 

We are accepting donations until Monday, December 5th!  You can donate to Toys For Tots at these stores:

  • Kunes RV of Elkhorn

  • Kunes GMC of Elkhorn

  • Kunes Ford-Lincoln of Delavan

  • Kunes Chevrolet Cadillac of Delavan
