Glenwood Inglewood Water Again Teams Up With Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation to Make Christmas Brighter for Needy Kids

Goal This Year: $10,000 Cash

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Glenwood Inglewood Water Company has joined the Marines. Again!

The Twin Cities area's leading provider of complete water, coffee and filtration services for home and office officially kicked off its third annual drive today to encourage the public and business organizations throughout the region to support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program this holiday season.

The goal this year is $10,000 in cash donations in addition to toys.

Fast becoming a tradition, the company has created a third annual Toys for Tots collector's item special edition half-liter bottled water product, and $2.40 for each case sold will go to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation. 

Last year, with the help of their customers, community members, vendors, and service providers, Glenwood Inglewood was able to raise several thousand dollars for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. 

"We can't do it without your help. I would like to challenge all of our suppliers, service providers and fellow community members to partner with us to deliver a much larger cash contribution and more toys to the Toys for Tots program this year. With still so many local Marine reservists overseas in harm's way this holiday season, there's a need for more people to join their ranks in support of the time-honored tradition of the Marine Corps' Toys for Tots Program," said Tom Schwein, President and CEO of Glenwood Inglewood (www.glenwoodinglewood.com). 

The Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation, started in 1947, has been successful in bringing thousands of smiles to needy children each year. Their sole mission is to ensure all less fortunate children have the chance to experience the same joys of the holiday season that millions of Americans take for granted each year.

Glenwood Inglewood's bottling facilities at 225 Thomas Avenue North, Minneapolis, will serve as the drop-off location for new, unwrapped toys.
