  • Description

    To foster greater participation and expand the contribution base for the Toys for Tots (T4T) program.

    Career Pathway/Field

    Objective

    Each of the high schools would be invited to compete in a contest to collect toys during the T4T campaign season (roughly 30 September; Chamber Kick off date through 14 December). The winning high school would receive a cash reward ($1000) and have their name placed on a traveling plaque that would be presented to the Student Body President of the winning high school prior to holiday break. The second and third place schools would also receive cash rewards ($500 and $250 respectively).

    Instructions

    Each High school would be provided one collection box by MCAG. Only new, packaged (with the exception of certain sporting goods and stuffed animals) and unused toys will be counted. Cash will not be accepted. Schools would be responsible for contacting MCAG for pick up and ensuring that the tally of toys is accurate and agreed upon prior to MCAG personnel taking possession of the toys. Only toys collected at the high school would be counted for a particular school (toys brought directly to MCAG would not be credited toward an individual school tally).The winner will be determined on a percentage basis by dividing the amount of toys collected by the total number of students at each high school. For example, if high school A has 500 students and donated 50 toys and high school B has 300 students and donated 50 toys, then high school B would be the winner as they donated more toys on a percentage basis. This formula provides for a more equitable representation of the level of participation at each high school than a formula based solely on the number of collected toys.
