This holiday season, Gibson Sothebys International Realty issupporting the Toys for Tots Foundation by collecting new, unwrapped gifts for children in need!
A program run by the U.S. Marine Corps,Toys for Tots has been delivering a message of hope through the gift of newtoys to less fortunate youngsters since 1947.Toni Gilardispearheads GSIR's donation efforts and the annual Toys for Tots fundraiser in the North End.
I fell in love with the mission of Toys for Tots over eighteen years ago, after a colleague invited me to join the effort," recalls Gilardi. "Our fundraiser has grown significantly over the years. When we needed to find a larger venue, I approached the Divine Design Center and they were thrilled to host our event in their gorgeous 10,000-square-foot showroom. The space enabled us to offer live cooking demonstrations by celebrity chefs, as well as music and dancing. Food, beverage and thousands of dollars in toys are donated each year by local businesses and neighborhood residents. Our fundraisers thrive on the generosity of our clients, friends, family and the residents of the North End and Waterfront areas. I am thankful for their participation in such a worthy cause."
If you would like to donate a gift this holiday season, please drop it off at any of our elevenoffice locations in Greater Boston. Gifts may be dropped off up until Friday,November 30. Thank you for your support year after year!
