What a spectacular day at NEJeep’s Annual Toys For Tots Drive at Toys"R"Us in Manchester, CT for The Marine Corps Toys For Tots! We had a reindeer, we had elves, we had Santa's helpers, and of course, we had Santa, but we even had Geoffrey the Giraffe. Most importantly, we had tons of smiles and tons of toys donated! Yes, that's FIFTEEN carts full, surpassing last years total by 3 carts! A good part of that was due to the incredible generosity of the young men from the UConn Car Club! An incredible job planning and executing by Rob and the team. Thank you!

Great turn out again!

Thanks to everyone the turn out and helped for this event.


If I had to speculate the dollar value for the toys collected.  I’d say somewhere between $4-5K

I love this event.  Our daughter gets an early impression and experience helping people.  it is hard for a five year old to see all those gifts sitting there and digest the fact that they are not for her.  the generosity of all who attended and donated is extremely humbling.

What a wonderful job everyone did!!!!   Sorry we could not be there to join you.   I had to be in RI with my daughter yesterday and Chris had a Masonic meeting all day.    I hope we can make it next year.

It was great for Journey to be able to see it and take part in helping people at an early age.  Not only that, a lot of kids who walked out of that store with gifts to leave with us likely had conversations with their families about what they and we were doing and why.  I see the results of conversations and experiences like that show up with the students I work with.

Thanks All. Laura really loves doing that stuff.

I'll admit I just had to look the flag thing up. I had no idea about the vertical display. I appreciate the correction and info.

"When displayed either horizontally or vertically against a wall, the union should be uppermost and to the flag's own right, that is, to the observer's left. When displayed in a window, the American flag should be displayed in the same way, with the union or blue field to the left of the observer in the street."
