MIS Proudly Serving as Toys For Tots Drop-Off PointShare
The U.S. Marine Corps has designated Michigan International Speedway as a drop-off point for this year's Toys for Tots campaign.
Michigan International Speedway is revving up for the holidays, serving as an official drop-off point for this year's U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign.
The U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaign has collected new, unwrapped toys to distribute as gifts to needy children in the community for the past 60 years.
MIS was selected as a collection and storage point because of the key role it plays as a charitable and caring partner in Brooklyn, Mich., and the surrounding communities, Bill Morris, local coordinator for Toys for Tots, said.
"Michigan International Speedway is proud to open its heart to help the Marines collect toys for children this season," speedway President Roger Curtis said. "We hope that this will help the Marines deliver a special message of hope to some of the children in our community by showing them that we really care about them at a time when many of them need it the most."
Unwrapped, new toys can be dropped off at the MIS lobby from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday until December 15.
"We hope to fill the drop-off box many times over with the help of the staff and race fans that support MIS," Morris said.
