Pep Boys Will Collect for Toys for Tots

Posted on October 18, 2019

Pep Boys – Manny, Moe & Jack tire and service centers is a national sponsor of Toys for Tots, the program run by U.S. Marines.

It is the first year for Pep Boys to participate. As a corporate sponsor, Pep Boys has committed a $25,000 donation and, over the next two months, employees will work with dedicated U.S. Marines and Toys for Tots volunteers in their areas to collect and distribute toys.

Pep Boys teams will be holding local donation drives and events, including car shows and cruise-ins where admission will include a Toys for Tots donation.

Starting Nov. 4, the Toys for Tots donation bins will be in service waiting areas of Pep Boys locations throughout the country where customers can donate new, unwrapped toys.

Pep Boys corporate offices and distribution centers will also have bins so the company’s 22,000 employees can also participate.

Customers who bring a Toys for Tots donation to Pep Boys this holiday season will receive 25% off their purchase of parts, accessories, or service as a thank you for their generosity.

“Pep Boys has long been a part of our local communities and a supporter of our nation’s military. As a national service network, a partnership with the Marine Toys for Tots Program was a perfect fit to contribute to the community and bring joy to children during the holiday season,” said Brian Kaner, CEO-Service.

Pep Boys is part of Icahn Automotive Group LLC.
