TIPS FOR TOTS

It's that time of the year again! The holiday season is just around the corner.  This year our annual Tips For Tots fundraiser is scheduled for Wednesday, December 10th.  Can we make it even bigger in 2014!?

 

TIPS FOR TOTS: BRIEF HISTORY

Tips For Tots started in 2006 when Corlie Brice, a bartender in our Salisbury location, noticed a Toys for Tots drop off and decided to donate her tips that night to buy toys for underprivileged children to open that Christmas. After explaining her intentions, co-worker Chris Tingle decided to donate his tips as well.  The two earned $700 that night, headed out to buy toys with the tips they had earned, and were able to buy even more toys when the local Ollie's Bargain Outlet gave them a discount after hearing their story.

This event has grown every year, with more team members stepping up and generously donating their tips on one day each December.  Last year was our biggest yet when the team members at 21 LOCATIONS participated and raised $36,161! The Corporate Office  contributed an additional $500 to every location that raised over $1,000 to donate .  Last year their total contribution was $7,500.  Combined, our Tips For Tots event raised $43,661 last year!  

 

Help us reach our goal and make the holiday season happier for local children by participating in 1 of 3 ways:

  1. Dine with us at a participating location on December 10th and 100% of the tip you leave will go toward the purchase of toys via donations to your local Toys for Tots chapter.
  2. Stop by a participating location and drop a new, unwrapped toy in the bin by December 11th.
  3. Can’t make it to the Turtle? Check out our GoFundMe campaign on the right side of your screen to donate directly to Toys for Tots!
