Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots is a seasonal endeavor in which Chamber member companies support Marine Corps Activity Guam's effort on island to ensure that a variety of toys and gift items are distributed in the community where they will do the most good. Toys for Tots has been popular among the membership and the generosity and support for this program is well supported by the employees of a variety of Chamber member companies.
This year's kick off event is scheduled for Wednesday, September 28, 2016 at the Chamber's General Membership Meeting Luncheon at The Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort. Members are encouraged to support this event by bringing a new and unwrapped toy to the meeting.
Companies interested in participating as a drop off site or in collecting gifts from among your employees are encouraged to contact the Guam Chamber of Commerce to arrange to be added to the list and to receive a wrapped box to accept gift contributions. A list of suggested gifts for youth ages 0 –17 is available for download below.
This year, local Guam high schools are encouraged to participate in a contest to collect the most gift items for youth ages 13 – 17 during the Toys for Tots campaign season from October 6th to December 12th. The winning high school will receive a cash prize of $1,000 and have their school name placed on a perpetual, traveling plaque that would be presented to the Student Body President of the winning high school prior to the holiday break. The second and third place schools would also receive cash prizes ($500 and $200 respectively). Please call the Chamber office for details.
