Collection of new toys to benefit
metro Detroit nonprofits
Clinton Township, Mich., Dec. 2, 2013 – Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace, the premier specialty market in metro Detroit, is helping to spread cheer to less fortunate children across metro Detroit this holiday season through a toy collection drive.
From Thursday through Sunday, Dec. 5-8, the public is asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the Stuff-A- Bus that will be parked in the market parking lot located at 17496 Hall Road, Clinton Township, Mich.
Once the bus is packed with fun goodies, the toys will go to area charities including Beaumont Children’s Hospital, Orchards Children’s Services, Volunteers of America, Goodfellows, Bridgepoint and others. Staff members and volunteers will then distribute the gifts to children.
“The Nino Salvaggio team is proud to lead this community-wide effort to spread joy to every boy and girl in metro Detroit,” said Kirk Taylor, president of Nino Salvaggio. “We ask everyone to come to our parking lot to donate a new and unwrapped holiday gift to make sure our Stuff-A-Bus is stuffed so full, we’ll need to hire eight reindeer of our own to help pull it down Hall Road.”
Pop radio station WDVD FM 96.3 is partnered to spread word about the toy drive. Donation hours at Nino Salvaggio are: 6 a.m. - 10 p.m., Thursday & Friday, Dec. 5 and 6; 9 a.m. - 10 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7; and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8.
