Federated announces new Toys for Tots microsite

Federated Auto Parts is pleased to announce its new microsite is up and running and ready to accept donations to the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. The special site is one of the ways Federated and its members will help raise money and collect toys for the annual Marine Toys for Tots program in 2012.

"We are very pleased to be able to offer this online donation option as a fast, easy and secure way to make donations to the Marine Toys for Tots campaign," said Mike Schultz of Federated Auto Parts.  "Although we will be collecting toys at participating Federated Auto Parts store locations from October through December, many folks have asked about making financial contributions. The new microsite is the perfect way to do so."

The Federated microsite (www.FederatedAutoParts.com/ToysforTots.aspx) links directly to the Toys for Tots website. Donors can use their credit card securely to make a monetary donation. There is also a form that can be printed out and mailed in with a check made out to Toys for Tots.

"We kicked-off our partnership with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation at the Federated 400 on Sept. 8 in Richmond and the response has been phenomenal," said Schultz. "Members, associates, customers and manufacturing partners have all expressed interest in helping this extremely worthwhile cause that brings the magic of Christmas to less fortunate children each holiday season."
