DAVIE, FL - Team National launched its Annual Holiday Toy Drive in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County on November 3, with a special gift collection for kids in need. More than 800 Team National Independent Marketing Directors from all across the country are in town attending the exclusive Team National Cruise with the President and each has donated at least one unwrapped gift for a child.
This year, Team National has increased their participation in this community effort by being the designated drop-off location for anyone who wants to make a donation. Team National President & CEO, Angela Loehr Chrysler stated, "Team National helps others because it’s part of our core values. We believe in giving back to our community, being thankful for our success, helping someone else in need and supporting organizations that make a difference in people’s lives."
Team National’s involvement with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County began over 10 years ago and has supported the mission to enable young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. Every year, Team National comes together to bring holiday joy to the children who attend the Boys & Girls Clubs by organizing a toy drive.
"There's no better way to begin our Holiday Toy Drive than with a Bon Voyage party for our 800 cruise winners. What a thrill it was for Angela and myself to watch as they completely filled a Cadillac Escalade full of toys to present to the BGCBC. We of course, wanted to match our members generosity and present the vehicle itself to the BGCBC to do with it as they wish. It was a great night knowing that the kids will receive these toys and a great beginning to our Holiday Toy Drive," said Team National Executive Vice President Phil Chrysler.
"The Boys & Girls Clubs are humbled and honored by the donation of Team National. This donation will start a great kick off for the start of our toy drive this year," said Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County CEO Brian Quail.
All toys will be collected at the Team National headquarters located at 8210 W. State Rd. 84 in Davie. These will then be presented to the Jim and Jan Moran Club during the Bikers Bash Day Ride event on December 7.
