Borgman Ford is playing Santa’s sleigh-helper for the 2017 Toys for Tots Drive. Area Marine Corps Reserve volunteers will be touring the town to collect toys to brighten the life of a child this Christmas in two Ford Transit Vans loaned to the cause. Each year, the US Marine Corps teams up with various businesses and organizations to provide toy drop-off locations for those wishing to make a donation. The Marine Corps Reserve, Marine Corps League and civilian volunteers collect all toy donations and distribute them to needy families in the area.
“The Transit Cargo Van is a very capable Dasher or Comet ” said Tod Tobin, Commercial Account manager in Borgman’s Fleet department. “Pick any reindeer who’s a reliable performer with some zip and you have the soul-twin of the Transit Van.”
Ford’s best selling delivery workhorse will be making the rounds at Grand Rapids area businesses this year throughout the balance of November until the final pickup December 20th.
“We challenge every business to do what they can to collect toys for this great cause. Sign up and brighten the life of a child,” said Matt Borgman, General Manager of the dealership.
Borgman Ford Mazda will be calling on its own customers to fill a few van loads of toys this season. Drop-offs begin today, with a $10 Off Oil Change coupon for the first 250 donors.
