Hello all, it’s that time of year again! The magical time of giving, when we who have, give to those that do not. The time of year that brings out the best in most, to make sure a child has a wonderful holiday.

Christmas for some is not a time of magic, filled with gifts and toys. Christmas for some is a time of hunger, and poverty, not gift giving and receiving.

As in years past, CWA Local 1298, will bring joy to a child or young adult, who otherwise may not have a joyous holiday season. We will once again step up to help the United States Marines Toys for Tots program.

This year because of COVID we will not be physically collecting toys to distribute. We will not have the familiar big white boxes at company locations, but instead you can click here to donate, your donations will be used to purchase toys for the Marines to distribute. This year they need our help and generosity more than ever, I fully believe our members will step up and meet the challenge as we always do.

Anyone wanting to donate toys directly to the Marines can do so at the following location:

Toys for Tots collection and distribution center at 340 Quinnipiac St, Building 21 (3rd Flr) Wallingford, CT. 06492. 

Please help make a child happy on Christmas, open your heart and your generosity and give to the Marines Toys for Tots program 2020. Please feel free to call CWA Local 1298 if you have any questions.

Thank You,
Chuck Borchert
Plant 1 Vice President
