Phoenix, Ariz .– November 16, 2017 – FastMed Urgent Care, owner and operator of more than 100 walk-in urgent care clinics across Arizona, Texas and North Carolina, is inviting everyone in the communities it serves to join the company’s drive to collect toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program this holiday season. New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off at local FastMed clinics, starting this Friday, November 17 and continuing through Friday, December 8.
FastMed is asking for your help in achieving its goal of 50 toys per clinic, for a total of at least 5,000 toys overall. FastMed will donate $1 to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Program for every toy collected.
“We consider ourselves a vital part of the communities we serve, and strive to demonstrate this commitment in meaningful ways,” explains Web Golinkin, Chief Executive Officer, FastMed Urgent Care. “Our team of 1,300+ employees is excited to be partnering with its communities to support Toys for Tots, which provides such a wonderful and much-needed service.”
All donated toys will be delivered to Toys for Tots in each of the counties where the toys were collected, for distribution to less-fortunate children within these same local communities. Since 1947, the Toys for Tots Program has collected and distributed donated toys to more than 244 million children who would not otherwise have been able to fully share in the joy of the holiday season.
New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off during regular clinic hours at any FastMed location. Clinics are open extended hours, seven days a week, including holidays.
