H&V Collision to Participate in Marines Toys for Tots Collection

H&V Collision Centers has partnered with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program to collect toys for distribution to Albany, N.Y.-area families during the 2011 holidays.

H&V company representatives said the effort this year recognizes the challenges being faced by many area families due to the tough economy. The Toys for Tots is one of the best-known charitable efforts during the holiday season.

Toys will be collected through November into December and given to the Marines in time for distribution during the holidays.

“Those of us at H&V Collision Centers want to do our part to make the holidays brighter for families in need and are honored to participate in the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program,” said H&V’s Vartan Jerian Jr.

“Customers and area residents are invited to visit any one of H&V Collision Center’s three locations and drop off a toy for distribution in the Toys for Tots program. We are hoping to help collect and give presents that will be remembered for many years to come,” added Jerian.

Toys can be dropped off at any of the three H&V Collision Centers locations including:
H&V Collision Centers Troy – 7 Oakwood Avenue, Troy
H&V Collision Centers Queensbury – 619 Quaker Road, Queensbury
H&V Collision Centers Colonie – 1615 Central Avenue, Colonie

Jerian is a former Marine who served before rejoining his family’s business.

Toys for Tots began in 1947 when a group of Marine reservists collected about 5,000 toys in the Los Angeles, Calif., area. During the 62 years of Toys for Tots, 400 million toys have been given to 188 million children.
