DALLAS, Jan. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Children in communities across the country woke up to unexpected gifts on Christmas morning thanks to money raised by Le-Vel for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.
Le-Vel Brands, LLC, the world leader in human nutritional innovation, donated $5 from every purchase in December of their limited-edition Holiday Derma Fusion Technology (DFT) for this worthy cause. The campaign resulted in another successful round of donations for children in need, with the total contribution from Le-Vel's two Toys for Tots campaigns exceeding $250,000.
"This fundraiser is one of our favorites at Le-Vel. There's nothing better than giving less fortunate children a chance to experience the magic of the season. We're so grateful we can play a part in this important nationwide program," said Drew Hoffman, COO & Chief Legal Officer of Le-Vel.
The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to children in communities across the United States.
"We were very pleased to welcome back Le-Vel as a national corporate sponsor of the Marine Toys for Tots Program," said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
"Finding a present under the tree on Christmas morning is an experience every child deserves, and Le-Vel has certainly done more than its fair share to help us bring that joy to children whose families have suffered so much. Their community service goals certainly align with those the Marine Corps has promoted for nearly 70 years through our Toys for Tots Program.
"With their generous support we will be able to fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of thousands of less fortunate children who otherwise might be forgotten."
Le-Vel is committed to the Toys for Tots mission of giving hope to children and helping them experience the joy of Christmas. It's a meaningful opportunity for Le-Vel Brand Promoters, customers and employees to come together and contribute to improving communities and serving families in need.
