Sealed Air Corporation has collected over 1,100 toys this holiday season for donation to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots Program. Sixteen Sealed Air locations across the U.S. donated to this annual toy drive as a way to give back to children in the local communities in which they live and work. The company is a 2016 National Corporate Donor to Toys for Tots.
For nearly 70 years, Toys for Tots has been the U.S. Marine Corps’ premier community action program. The Toys for Tots message of hope for the future has motivated youngsters to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. Toys for Tots not only benefits children, but also has a positive impact on communities, on businesses – large and small, on the Marine Corps and on the nation.
"We are very pleased to welcome Sealed Air back as a national corporate donor of the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign," said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “With their generous support, we will be able to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of many less fortunate children, who otherwise might have been forgotten."
“We are pleased to be able to partner again this year with The United States Marine Corp Reserve for their signature program to give less fortunate children a special gift for the holidays,” said James Whaley, Vice President, Global Corporate Communications for Sealed Air and Chairman of the Sealed Air Veterans Network. “At Sealed Air, we are committed to benefitting the societies in which we live and work. The enthusiastic participation and donations given by Sealed Air employees shows how committed they are to the communities where they live and work.”
