Drop-Off Your Toys For Tots at Brighton Ford
Brighton Ford is proud to be a Toys For Tots drop-off site for yet another year. This is a great program that brings Christmas joy to many kids in need during the holiday season. Drop off a new, unwrapped toy in our Showroom all holiday season long and we will deliver it to the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve program for them to distribute to those who have fallen on hard times. Bringing a smile to these kids’ faces during this time of year is such a rewarding feeling…
The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

A great day to drop your Toys For Tots is during our 17th Annual Holiday Window Painting Event on December 13th from 5-7pm. For 17 years we have been inviting Brighton Area Elementary Schools to paint our showroom windows for the holidays. This is just one, of the many community events Brighton Ford participates in to help our community. We give the opportunity for the elementary school students of Brighton to express themselves artistically with paint and decorate our showroom windows for the holidays. We also will donate thousands of dollars to the Brighton Area Schools Art Departments, as we understand the importance of art and creative thinking for our young students. This is a free community event that is fun for all ages, where participants can vote on the best school's window art. Voting on the student's window art is from 5-6:45pm and you can earn an extra vote if you bring a Toy For Tot or a Coat For A Kid.
The prizes for each school is as follows:
-1st place: $3,000
-2nd place: $1,000
-3rd and 4th places: $500
There will be pictures with Santa, a flat screen TV giveaway, bounce houses, balloon artists, clowns, face painting, pizza, fun and games for all. Bring your family out for this awesome free event on December 13th!
