Federated Auto Parts officially kicked off its corporate partnership with Marine Toys for Tots prior to the Federated Auto Parts 400 on Sept. 8.
Bill Grein, vice president for Marine Toys for Tots, received a check for $65,000 from Federated Auto Parts CEO Rusty Bishop.
“The Marine Corps and the Toys for Tots Foundation really believe that you’re judged by the company you keep,” Grein said during the presentation of the check by Bishop. “We’re very, very pleased to keep the company of Federated Auto Parts. This is very important to us.”
Federated also launched a new microsite that is ready to accept donations to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The microsite www.FederatedAutoParts.com/ToysforTots.aspx links directly to the Toys for Tots website. Donors can use a credit card securely to make a donation. There also is a form that can be printed out and mailed in with a check made out to Toys for Tots.
