Give Toys for Tots in Danville

Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is again joining forces with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve for its local Toys for Tots campaign to act as an official gift collection center for the 22nd year until Dec. 12. The program is designed to provide holiday joy for needy children through the collection and distribution of new, unwrapped toys.

Founded in 1947, Toys for Tots has evolved from a small Los Angeles-area project to a nationwide campaign. During the past 60 years, Marines have distributed more than 370 million toys to some 173 million children across the nation.

"Our annual Toys for Tots collection gives our agents and staff a chance to give back to the community that they have been working in all year long," said Joe Brown, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, which has 36 toy collection centers.

The office in Danville is located at 600 San Ramon Valley Blvd. Call 837-4100.
