“We are very excited that once again, Klinedinst PC has become a national corporate donor of the Marine Toys for Tots Campaign,” said retired Marine Major Bill Grein, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “Klinedinst’s support, as well as the support of our other major donors, is crucial during these uncertain economic times, and allows us to continue providing gifts to children and families in need.”
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is best known for its annual Toys for Tots program, which helps disadvantaged children across the United States by collecting and distributing toys during the holidays.
Since 1947, Toys for Tots has distributed a staggering 452 million toys to more than 209 million children across the country. Last year alone, the organization distributed over 15.6 million gifts to 7.2 million kids.
According to the Foundation, 97% of every donation goes directly to the purchase of toys, books, and other gifts. Only 3% is spent on fundraising expenses, and no funds donated go to pay for salaries or other manpower costs. This incredible ratio earned the Foundation a ranking of #75 in the 2011 Philanthropy 400, published by the Chronicle of Philanthropy.
“On behalf of our clients and employees, we are honored to support such a highly-respected organization,” noted John D. Klinedinst, CEO and Shareholder of Klinedinst PC. “No other organization encapsulates what the holidays are about better than Toys for Tots. We’re thrilled to continue working together to brighten the holidays for kids who need it most.”
2012 marks the third year that Klinedinst has been a National Corporate Donor. This year, the firm is the only law firm to participate at the National Corporate Donor level.
