Philadelphia, PA — (ReleaseWire) — 01/12/2022 — Gary Barbera drove into the Holiday Season early again to steer focus on Toys for Tots when Philadelphia’s Tallest Santa landed on the Gary Barbera’s on the Boulevard iconic rooftop at the end of October. “We saw firsthand how COVID increased food insecurity and how hunger never rests. Our partnerships with the Lovely Lawncrest Community distributing food with Share Food Program and our Gary Barbera holiday Turkey community distribution continued albeit in a different way this season,” said Barbera. We realized early that the need for food would take precedence and COVID would slow down toy collections for many reasons. We can’t do everything but each of us can do what we can. The annual Barbera Cares Toy for Tots Collection changed to monetary donations in honor of Barbera clients Every Vehicle on the Lot Helps Support Toys For Tots. The Barbera Cares donations were earmarked so that families and children in our local Philadelphia area will be the beneficiaries.
Gary Barbera presented US Marine Staff Sargent Matthew Everett, Toys for Tots – Philadelphia with a donation check for $10,000 ten thousand dollars to buy toys for local children and teens so that all who needed would not be left without a special gift for Christmas at the Philadelphia Toys for Tots Collection and Sorting Warehouse on Bridge Street.
We are so grateful to SSGT Matthew Everett and all of the US Military and their families for all they do seen and unseen for our betterment. Is Toys for the Tots the Best? Boy I Guess!
