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.
