Rapids Ford to Rock Toys for Tots

by Doug MacRostie

I was working on a deal when the Rep. from the Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots stopped by Rapids Ford to ask us to be a drop off location for toys this year. As I was walking up I overheard the Rep. saying that it would be great if we signed on, because, “for whatever reason Ford Dealerships bring in the most toys.” Gary, the General Manager, smoothly replied, “Well, that’s probably because Ford is the bestselling brand in America.” Makes sense to me: If we’ve got more people walking in, that should lead to more toys dropped off.

And I intend for Rapids Ford to rock Toys for Tots. I encourage you to take the time to drop off an inexpensive toy (still in the original packaging) and bring a little joy to those less fortunate. I overheard the Rep. say these toys stay local for our community members in need. We’ll be collecting toys through Dec. 20th at Noon.
