Touchdown for Tots - Redskins Holiday Toy Drive Kicks Off This Week!

12.02.2011 / Blog Posts Community Redskins

The Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and the U.S Marine Corps will join forces once again and reach thousands of underserved metro DC children and teens this holiday season through Touchdown for Tots, a national toy drive benefiting the Toys for Tots Foundation.

"Now more than ever it is important to support our neighbors in need through initiatives like Touchdown for Tots so that every child may experience the joy of opening a gift during the holidays,” said safety Oshiomogho Atogwe.

Fans can score a Touchdown for Tots in a number of ways:

1. Touchdown for Tots Toy Drive - Sunday, Dec. 11 Redskins vs. Patriots game at FedExField

Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy for children and teens and drop it off with local marines stationed at all stadium gates and suite entrances with collection bins.

2. Donate at any official Washington Redskins Store

Now through Dec. 18, fans can visit any official Redskins store location or go to www.redskinsteamstore.com to make a tax-deductible donation to Toys for Tots. Donations will be added to the merchandise total at check-out.

3. Donate Online

Visit www.toysfortots.org/touchdown to make a donation to the Toys for Tots Foundation.

In 2010, Redskins fans donated more than 1,047 toys and $27,329 to the Toys for Tots campaign. The toys and the funds collected were added to the 101,000 toys collected throughout the DC metro area and that meant over 27,000 area children and teens were able to unwrap a gift Christmas morning.
