NEXT Financial Group Donates to Charitable Cause

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - December 22, 2010) - NEXT Financial Group, Inc., the seven-time Independent Broker/Dealer of the Year,* has continued its charitable initiatives by donating toy items to Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Donations were collected at NEXT's home office by representatives of the 1st Battalion, 23rd Marines.

Accepting the donations were United States Marine Corps veterans Gary Nemec and Chuck Wright, accompanied by Master Sgt. Yolanda Hamilton, who is currently on active duty.

"We appreciate your dedicated service to our country and all of your work toward Toys for Tots. Your generosity will help make Christmas a little brighter for the children of our community," said Barry Knight, President of NEXT Financial Group, Inc.

Since 1946, U.S. Marines have distributed over 400 million toys to more than 188 million needy children. This charitable endeavor focuses on giving toys to children that are receiving federal assistance. Marines are given a list of needs for an area, and the toys collected from that area are then distributed back to the children of the community in which they were collected. Funds that are collected are used to purchase toys for age groups in which not enough toys are collected. By purchasing these toys in their respective communities, Marine Toys for Tots helps local economies as well as impoverished families.
