The U.S. Marine Corps, along with Dunkin' Donuts franchisees, stormed the Toys R Us on Wolf Road in Colonie this morning on a Toys for Tots shopping spree.
Soldiers and DD employees gathered up $25,000 worth of toys, an act made possible by a Dunkin' Donuts donation in the same amount to the Toys for Tots Foundation. The Corps this year is naming its annual holiday train the Dunkin' Donuts Toys for Tots Train in recognition of the company's donation in the past two campaigns.
"We feel so fortunate to have found such a dedicated community partner in Dunkin' Donuts and are grateful beyond words for the support that Dunkin' Donuts and their franchisees have provided to keep our holiday train on track," said Gunnery Sgt. Albert Roman, local Toys for Tots drive organizer.
The train will travel to 12 communities across the state and deliver toys and winter coats to nonprofits, which will distribute them to needy children.
The collection is ongoing at more than 400 locations throughout the Capital Region. To find a drop site near you or learn more about the program, visit albany-ny.toysfortots.org.""
