Toys for Tots Drive
Toys for Tots Drive at Minovi Dental near Dupont Circle, Washington, DC!
We’re having a Toys for Tots drive at our office, here at Minovi Dental in the heart of Washington, DC!
‘Tis the season yet again (almost). We are excited to announce that we are holding a Toys for Tots drive at our office to give less fortunate children the means to experience the joy that the season of Christmas intrinsically brings.
Toys for Tots has been awarded many awards for their charity work with children in need. Toys for Tots was originally begun in 1947 with the purpose of providing children in need gifts on Christmas where their parents could not afford to. It started as a very modest effort by one man inspired by his wife’s attempt at finding a charity to donate a toy to a child in need, and not finding any.
From that first year it has snowballed into one of the most inspiring charities for children out there. The mission of the Toys for Tots Foundation is, “to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.” Their goal 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.” They’ve been successfully doing this now for over half a century now, putting smiles on the faces of children during the holiday season, and filling young hearts with hope.
We are very proud to assist the Toys for Tots Foundation with achieving their goals, and contributing to their mission.
We have a donation box set up in our office located at 1234 19th St. NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036. Our office is Metro accessible, being only one block away from the Dupont Circle Metro Station (take the South exit). Our office is located on the fourth floor. We are open Tuesday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. The last pickup from the Toys for Tots Foundation will be the 14th of December, so be sure to get any donations in by then.
As a “thank you” to those contributing toys to this charity, we will also be offering free consultation appointments for any who are interested. If you are interested in the free consultation: When you bring in your donation, speak with the front desk staff about scheduling an appointment with us. If we can see you when you come in with your donation we will, otherwise we can help set up something that works for you. You can also visit our Appointment page, and mention that you will be bringing in a toy donation and would like to have a FREE consultation with the doctor. We will work with you to set up a good time that works for you.
If you aren’t interested in the consultation but would still just like to donate a toy, please feel free to stop by any time that we are open.
We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts, here at Minovi Dental for giving underprivileged children another reason to smile this Christmas!
