At Haley and the Hound, we are fortunate to be able to give back to charities and support our local community. Selecting a different deserving charity each month, we work with our customers to raise awareness about a local cause and gain funds to donate to the organization through online sales. Though the holidays are still a few months off, we’re kicking off the season of giving by supporting the Toys for Tots program throughout September. That’s right, get your favorite fall pieces and help kids in need this Christmas.
The mission of Toys for Tots is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November, and December of each year. Once the toys are collected, they then distribute them as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in various communities. The goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate children and youth. This message will hopefully then assist them in becoming responsible, productive, and patriotic citizens.
Through the Toys for Tots program, children up to age 12 are supported. Although in some local communities that have additional local support, the age limit may be extended to ages 14 through 16 years old. Over 97% of donations goes directly to providing toys, books, and other gifts to less fortunate children.
At Haley and the Hound, we know how fortunate we are and we want to share the love with those who are in need. No child should have to wake up to nothing on Christmas morning. As the weather starts to cool, now is the ideal time to stock-up on your fall necessities, purchase those early holiday gifts and take advantage of our summer sale, all while helping Haley and the Hound give back. Start shopping today and we’ll donate 10% of online sales directly to Toys for Tots.
