During the 2010 holiday season, Check Advance will serve as national sponsors for the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. For the ninth consecutive year, the more than 300 branches, located in nine states have served as collection centers for new unwrapped toys and cash donations.
“Reaching out to our local communities has always been very important to us as a company,” COO Drew Haney said. “Especially during these economic times in which almost every family has been impacted with job losses or wage decreases. Children in our local neighborhoods might not get gifts during this holiday season. That’s why we want to get involved.”
New unwrapped toys will be collected at Check Advance in Tunica. They are located at 2183 Highway 61 North. A representative at each local U.S. Marine toys for Tots center will pick up all toys on or about Dec. 20 and distribute them locally.
Monetary donations will also be collected at the local stores during this time. The donations will be totalled up and a check will be presented to the U.S. Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
