The Strawberry Street Long & Foster office is proud to be heading up the collection efforts in the Fan for the Toys for Tots Campaign. For well over a decade, the Strawberry Street office has been the designated drop-off site for all those who wish to contribute to this worthwhile program that is coordinated by The United States Marine Corps. This program makes it possible for many children to receive new toys that they would otherwise not receive. Look for the sign and mountain of toys in the window at the office located at 409 Strawberry Street. They are already accepting any and all donations of new, unwrapped toys with tags still attached and will be collecting from now until December 16th.
In addition, this year, the agents at Strawberry Street decided to kick it up a notch. Anybody who brings in a donation will be receiving a ticket for a special holiday movie event on December 9th at the Byrd Theater. Attendees will be able to visit with Santa while listening to seasonal favorites being played on the Byrd’s famous Wurlitzer organ. Popcorn and refreshments will be provided and after settling in, the fan-favorite movie, The Polar Express, will be shown. If you aren’t able to get to the Strawberry Street office beforehand, gifts will be accepted at the event. Doors open at 1:00 p.m., and the movie begins at 1:30 p.m. Any questions? – Just call the Strawberry Street office at 340-0840. It is sure to be an evening of fun for both children and adults. We’ll see you there!
