Anonymous $50,000 (Update: It’s Now $80K!) Holiday Toy Donation To Toys For Tots

This year, Geppetto’s at The Forum Carlsbad has been selected as the go-to toy store destination for a generous philanthropist who is purchasing $50,000 (scratch that…it’s now up to $80K!) worth of toys to donate to Toys for Tots!

Done anonymously, this donor is certainly sharing the spirit of the holiday season and doing this for all the right reasons. Geppetto’s is also donating hundreds of toys to add to the donation.

U.S. Marine Corps Pickup

Geppetto’s at The Forum Carlsbad will be gearing up for the major donation and pick-up by members of the U.S. Marine Corps for Toys for Tots. Starting early the morning of November 9th, the team will be there with the donor personally selecting items for the donation from 6-8AM and then all the boxes of gifts will be ready for pick-up by the Marines from 8 – 10AM.

The store will be open at 10AM and the community is invited to come and be part of the experience. They can donate as well or simply come to witness the giving spirit.

All donors who make a donation of an unwrapped, new toy on Nov. 9 will be entered into a drawing to win a $100 gift card to Geppetto’s Toys.

Spreading the Christmas spirit!

Toys for Tots is a non-profit with a mission of collecting and distributing new unwrapped toys for less fortunate children at Christmas. With complete anonymity, the donor is spreading the Christmas spirit in a touching and remarkable way, shared for all to experience.

In doing so, this donor is also helping a local business, whose owner, like so many others, has been challenged during the past 18 months by the pandemic.

We love it!

See you there, San Diego!
