Shop for Tots

As you gather with friends and family to give thanks for all your blessings, we ask that you do what you can to help those less fortunate. Join Hatchett Design Remodel is collecting Toys for Tots this Thanksgiving weekend. It’s traditionally the best weekend to shop, so you can save while you give!

The big stores, like Walmart, will be featuring special Black Friday deals on toys.  Kohl’s, for example, has up to 50-60% off their Black Friday deals, including classic wooden toys by Melissa & Doug.

Boutiques and Mom & Pop shops all over Hampton Roads will be offering special deals throughout their stores, toys included. Shop on this day and support two great causes – Buy Local and Toys for Tots. Check out local toy stores like POP Kids Store in downtown Norfolk or Matt & Juliette in Williamsburg. Boutiques such as Le Marche and A. Dodson’s in Ghent aren’t specifically “toy stores”, but they have a great selection of unique gifts for kids of all ages – and you’ll probably find a little something for yourself in there as well!

If all that tryptophan leaves you too tired to get off the couch to tackle sales on Friday or Saturday, then Cyber Monday is for you! Pretty much any store with a website will be featuring special savings on Monday. Amazon’s Best Sellers list is a great way to find out what’s popular with the kids this year.

Toys for Tots provides gifts to children of all ages, but tweens and teens tend to be overlooked. Please keep these kids in mind while you shop. Electronics, classic board games, craft kits, and sports equipment are all good ideas for these taller tots.

Kicking Off Toys for Tots

At Hatchett Design Remodel, there’s nothing we love more than seeing an expression of pure joy on someone’s face. That’s why we work so hard to make our clients happy, and it’s why we love contributing to Toys for Tots.

Toys for Tots is a long standing tradition in the U.S. Marine Corps, and their mission is to bring “a tangible sign of hope to economically disadvantaged children at Christmas.” That’s a mission we are on board with at Hatchett Design Remodel. The toys we collect on their behalf stay local and go to children right here in our own community.

From admin and management to design and construction, the Hatchett team supports Toys for Tots internally, and we would like to increase our impact by inviting you to contribute.

Toys for Tots 2018 Kick-Off

The halls of Hatchett Design Remodel are decked for the holidays as we kick-off this year’s Toys for Tots campaign. Now thru December 14th, we are collecting new, unwrapped toys at our showrooms in Newport News and Virginia Beach.
The Marine Toys for Tots mission is to send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children through the gift of a new toy. Their mission resonates with our team here at Hatchett, and we hope that you’ll help us spread the joy of Christmas throughout Hampton Roads. Your gifts will be given to children in our community.
If you’d like to help but hate to shop, monetary donations can be made by clicking the “Donate” button on our website.
For those who enjoy shopping as much as giving, here’s what’s popular with the tots this year.
Encourage family bonding with a good, old-fashioned board game… or choose a game like Googly Eyes that puts a silly twist on a ol’ favorite. This hilarious game is basically Win Lose or Draw with vision-altering eyewear.
Inspire the creativity of a budding story teller with a LEGO Make Your Own Movie kit. This toy includes a free app (compatible with both tablets and phones) that helps kids direct their own stop-motion animated movies.
Play it safe with a present that’s sure to please, like anything Star Wars. With light and sound, this Bladebuilders toy is a good choice – because who doesn’t want their own lightsaber?!
Toys that get kids playing outside can usually be enjoyed by more than one kid at a time. You can’t go wrong with Giant Jenga, Ladder Ball, Bocce Ball, Bean Bag Toss, or a frisbee or frisbee game like Flimsee.

However you choose to donate, your contribution is tax-deductible. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) not-for-profit public charity.

Thank you for helping make Christmas brighter for children in our community. You may drop off a new, unwrapped toy at our showrooms in Newport News and Virginia Beach. We are open 10am to 5pm Monday through Friday. And like Don Hatchett says, your donation is more than just a toy, it’s a gift of joy.
