Clackamas UPS collects holiday toys for children


The Clackamas UPS Store, 10117 S.E. Sunnyside Road, is accepting donations for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.

The U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation is a nonprofit organization authorized by the U.S. Marine Corps and the Department of Defense. In 2008, Marines distributed gifts to 7.6 million children in 657 communities nationwide.

Throughout November and December, UPS Store 0803 is offering customers the opportunity to purchase Toys for Tots Literacy Program donation cards. Every donation helps the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation buy a book for a deserving child in Clackamas.

In addition to raising money for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, UPS Store 0803 ran a food drive in its store to help “eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry.”

The UPS Store network is the exclusive sponsor of the Toys for Tots Literacy Program. Since launching the program in March 2008, nearly $1.6 million has been raised, helping to deliver thousands of books to less fortunate children across the country.
