ERA American Real Estate in Shalimar, FL will be collaborating with ERA Real Estate and other ERA affiliated brokerages across the country to join together to collect holiday gifts for children in need.
The campaign will start at the Fort Walton Beach Holiday parade on December 2nd, where ERA American elves will be collecting new, unwrapped toys along the parade route. ERA American elves will also be collecting donations at the Niceville Holiday Parade on December 7th, as well.
Office toy collection will kick off on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, December 3, which is also known as #GivingTuesday, and will work in tandem with national non-profit organization Toys for Tots.
ERA American Real Estate will be collecting new, unwrapped toys and bikes through December 8 at Okaloosa and Santa Rosa County ERA American locations. All donations will be distributed to local children.
Established in 1947, Toys for Tots is the U.S. Marine Corps’ premiere community action program. A national program with a local touch, the charity has local toy collection and distribution programs in most major market areas and all 50 states. For more than 70 years it has distributed an annual average of 18 million toys to seven million children-in-need.
“Many families must choose between buying gifts and paying bills. We are always looking for ways to give back to our local community. We want to ensure that every child experiences the joy of opening a gift this holiday season.”Gloria Frazier, Broker/Owner of ERA American
