Eagan and Minneapolis Orthodontist Practice Participates in Toys for Tots

EAGAN, MN and ST. PAUL, MN and MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - Minneapolis Orthodontist Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth is participating in the Toys for Tots program for the third straight year.

Eisenhuth's patients have been asked to bring in new, unwrapped toys to donate to the charity, and those who donate will be entered into a drawing to become the Eagan and Minneapolis orthodontics practice's official spokesperson on Dec. 10 when the toys are delivered to the KARE 11 television station during the afternoon newscast.

"We're trying to give our young patients more opportunities to be involved in community events," said Eisenhuth, a Minneapolis, MN braces expert.

The winning patient who gets to be the spokesperson will be picked up in a party bus or limousine and taken to the television station to deliver the toys. He or she will get to be interviewed on-air and tell how many toys were collected and how the office went about collecting them.

"The patients seem really excited about the opportunity," Eisenhuth said. "Our toy box is almost full and we have about 30 names in our drawing jar so far."

All patients who donate a toy receive a token, which is part of Eisenhuth's ongoing reward program in her office. Patients collect the tokens and can cash them in for items such as gift cards.

Eisenhuth is pleased with the participation so far.

"Our patients have been very generous and for that, we are grateful," she said. "This will be a tough holiday season for some families this year, so we're trying to do our best to help as many families as we can with our donations."

Anyone interested in donating toys to Toys for Tots can drop them off at Eisenhuth's Eagan office location between now and Dec. 10 at noon.

Toys for Tots began in 1947, when Maj. Bill Hendricks, USCR and a group of Los Angeles Marine Reservists collected and distributed 5,000 new and refurbished toys to underprivileged children.
