A Season for Giving

Since 1948 the men and women of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve have collected and distributed millions of toys each Holiday season through the Toys for Tots Program.

Here in Brevard County the Toys for Tots program Local Contributing Organization is administered by a very special group of volunteers- most all of them kids ranging in age from 9- 19. This dedicated group of boys and girls are members of the Florida Volunteer Search and Rescue Corps – SAR Corps for short.

Each weekend beginning in early November these dedicated young individuals will stand post collecting donations and new unwrapped toys from various Wal- Mart locations in Central Brevard. These young Cadets have been performing this invaluable humanitarian mission for the children and families of Brevard County since 1998. Some of these young adults give up their free time every Saturday and Sunday and most will put in a full day from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm. A noble task for anyone – especially some no more than 10 years old themselves.

In this 12th year, the children and families of Brevard need our help more than ever considering all of the financial hardships that so many have been faced with this year.

Island Lincoln mercury Jaguar Land rover is proud to be a supporter of such a dedicated and dilligent group of young people. We are an authorized Toys for Tots donation drop off/ collection location.

Please join us in our efforts and come by our dealership and donate a new unwrapped toy, book, ball or game. Your generous cash donations are desperately needed and appreciated as well.

You may bring your donation of toys to our dealership 7 days a week until Wednesday December 22nd . Our collection boxes are located in our Service Department as well as at the entrance to the Island Club.

Island Lincoln Mercury Jaguar Land Rover would like to thank all of our employees, vendors and their families for their support. May the Blessings of Christmas be with you all throughout this, “The Season of Giving”
