The membership of Jackson Commercial Contractors Association has once again supported the annual toy and fund-raising drive of Toys for Tots. Each year, at the JCCA Christmas Party, members participate in the drive by donating toys and dollars for the Jackson Toys for Tots effort. At this year’s party, members donated a total of $643 and a substantial quantity of toys.
In Jackson, Toys for Tots supplies more than 20,000 toys to families in need. Volunteers with the Salvation Army and the United States Marine Corps collect, sort, and wrap toys that are then donated to families who have requested assistance. JCCA members volunteer their time in addition to the contributions of toys and money.
According to JCCA President Ryan Smithson, the JCCA membership views Toys for Tots as an important program that is a JCCA tradition at the Holidays and the annual Christmas party. “We look forward to providing our help with Toys for Tots each year,” said Smithson. “The JCCA is proud to support Toys for Tots and our members hope our donations will bring much happiness to our area families at Christmas.”
