The Fort Myers SOTA Club Donates To Toys For Tots:
The Fort Myers SOTA Club raised over $150 to purchase toys for The Marine “Toys for Tots” drop box located on campus. OTA Instructor Ms. Cindy Mackey turned the shopping trip into a valuable education lesson. Students first decided how much money they wanted to spend per age group. They then went about selecting toys that encourage developmental growth. The ultimate success of the “Toys for Tots” campaign depends on the support of the local community and the generosity of the people who donate toys. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity, is the authorized fundraising and support organization for the “Toys for Tots” program.
