Toys “R” Us has teamed up with NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal for the annual Toys for Tots Campaign. The fundraising campaign for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation begins October 22 in Toys “R” Us and Babies “R” Us stores nationwide, as well as at Toysrus.com/ToysforTots.
Earning the name “Shaq-A-Claus,” the basketball player will make surprise visits to Toys “R” Us stores in the coming months to shop for needy children and encourage customers to give back. For nine weeks, through December 6, new, unwrapped toys will be collected at the company’s stores. The collected toys will be distributed to children in the community where they were donated. Monetary donations will also be accepted.
Facebook members can also participate by becoming fans of Toys “R” Us or Babies “R” Us. For every new fan through Christmas Eve, $1 worth of toys will be donated to Toys for Tots. For more information on Toys for Tots, visit Toysrus.com/ToysforTots or www.toysfortots.org.
