More details can be found at “We are pleased to continue our partnership with the U.S. Marine Corps to bring holiday cheer to our communities while supporting the Toys for Tots Program,” said Paul Fitzhenry, the company’s senior vice president, Global Communications. “We are looking forward to a great turnout once again this year.” Goodyear and the Marines have collaborated on four Toys for Tots events, which collectively raised $75,000 and delivered more than 57,000 toys to needy children. “The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve are grateful to Goodyear for returning as a national sponsor again this year,” said retired Major Bill Grein, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “We know how successful this program has been in recent years, and we’re very excited about the blimp ride offer. It should generate many additional toys to help us fulfill the Christmas dreams of less-fortunate children who might otherwise be forgotten.” Goodyear nicknamed one of its first blimps the “Santa Claus Express” in 1927 to spread holiday cheer across the skies of America. The company has a long history of charitable giving as well as community involvement and fundraising for worthy causes including United Way, Support Our Troops and hundreds of local and national charities. Founded in 1948, the mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December for distribution to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.
