For the eighth consecutive year, Atomic Tattoos is hosting their Toys for Tats toy drive benefiting the local U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program. The goal of the program is to collect as many new unwrapped toys for needy children of all ages so they can experience the joys of the holiday season.
Every person who brings in a new unwrapped toy with a five-dollar value or greater to their local Atomic Tattoos location will receive a $20 Atomic Tattoos gift certificate. The toys are given to the local U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation and distributed to local families in need within each community.
Since Atomic Tattoos launched this community responsibility program in 2003, they have received and donated more than 15,000 toys that have helped brighten the holiday season for over 5,000 families in Tampa and Orlando, FL and Milwaukee, WI. Each year the total number of toys collected has increased significantly and the public participation has been tremendous.
We believe that local businesses have a responsibility to contribute and donate directly to their local communities, states COO Clay Montgomery. Throughout the years, the generosity from our customers has been amazing and touched all of us. We have had customers drop off everything from video game consoles to custom-built bicycles.
The Atomic Tattoos Toys for Tats campaign runs November 15, 2010 through December 24, 2010. Toys can be delivered during business hours at any of Atomic Tattoos fifteen locations. Ultimately, to me, Toys for Tats truly represents the ultimate spirit of giving because an anonymous person is brightening the holiday season for a child they will never know, Montgomery concludes.
Atomic Tattoos is the largest and fastest growing tattoo retail brand in the $2 billion-a-year tattoo industry and has been selected for the past three years as one of Inc. Magazines 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies. Atomic Tattoos retail stores are located throughout Tampa Bay, Orlando and Milwaukee.
