The MarineMax Naples Yacht Center in Florida teamed with the Collier County Salvation Army in support of its annual food and toy drive benefiting Toys for Tots.

In November and December, MarineMax Naples was able to "Fill the Boat" and “Overflow the Outrage” by collecting 179 toys, 39 books, 27 small items and two bikes that customers donated.

“The holiday season is a great time to show kids and families that you care,” MarineMax Naples general manager Jim Connor said in a statement. “We’d also like to thank the Collier County Salvation Army for all that they do for those in need this time of year. They are the real heroes.”

The Toys for Tots Foundation is the fundraising and support organization for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

The foundation was created at the behest of the Marine Corps and has supported Toys for Tots since 1947. The mission of the program is to collect new, unwrapped toys in October, November and December each year and distribute them as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.
