What: Toys for Tots
Who: NBA player Shaquille O’neal a.k.a Shaq has teamed up with Toys R’ Us to help donate cash and toys to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation this holiday season.
The partnership with O’Neal was inspired by his annual visits to Toys”R”Us stores on Christmas Eve to purchase toys for children in need. His 15-year history of buying and distributing these toys to underprivileged children in cities across the country earned him the name, “Shaq-A-Claus.” This holiday season, the legend of Shaq-A-Claus will continue when O’Neal makes surprise visits to Toys”R”Us stores in the coming months to shop for needy children and encourage customers to give back. During the nine-week campaign beginning today, new, unwrapped toys will be collected through December 6 at Toys”R”Us and Babies”R”Us stores across the country. Collected toys will be distributed to children in the communities where they are donated, making this a truly local program. Monetary donations will be accepted at all Toys”R”Us and Babies”R”Us locations and online at Toysrus.com/ToysforTots through Christmas Eve.ToysR’us
