Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz collects toys for Toys for Tots

For the 15th year, Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz offices are collecting toys to be distributed by the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation.

Toys will be collected until December 15, when they will be picked up and distributed by Toys for Tots to approved local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other organizations.

“Collecting toys is a favorite annual tradition in our office, and part of our commitment to the community for nearly 60 years” said managing partner Chris Smith. “We know that the last couple of years have been difficult for many families, and we are proud to do our part to make the holidays brighter for as many families as we can.”

In 2020, Toys for Tots in Lee County distributed 61,110 toys to 27,831 children, an increase from 55,321 toys to 16,422 children in 2019. In Collier County, Toys for Tots distributed 14,780 toys to 5,155 children in 2020.

The public is invited to bring new, unwrapped toys for newborn children through age 12 to any of the five Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz offices, which will also collect donations to Toys for Tots of North Central Lee County.
