Both Minnesota School of Cosmetology (MSC) locations (Plymouth & Woodbury) were official donation sites for the 2016 Toys for Tots campaign. Anyone who donated a new unwrapped toy for children received $5 off any one service.
Thank you to everyone who contributed for helping us give back to our community! We were able to collect more than 125 gifts and sincerely appreciate your help. We also received a large donation from Woodbury High School as well as many of our MSC clients. These gifts helped out so many families and made children of all ages happy!
According to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys For Tots website, the goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.
“We love being able to participate in helping out those in need in our community,” said Cori Omundson, Front Desk Manager at MSC-Woodbury and organizer of the event. “Toys for Tots is a wonderful organization which helps bring joy to many children’s lives who otherwise might not have a good holiday season. We were happy to partner with Toys for Tots to collect toys this year and loved being a designated drop off location. We especially would like to thank Woodbury High School for their huge donation of many toys.”
We are glad we could help families in our community during the holiday season. Happy Holidays from everyone at the Minnesota School of Cosmetology!
