Fairfield, CT – Westy Self Storage recently announced its continued support of the “Toys for Tots” Donation Drive.  This drive will run until December 20.  Westy Self Storage in Fairfield is hosting this drive as the designated drop off location for donations.  In addition to collection, Westy will also provide storage for the donations as well as make the final delivery.

The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve “Toys for Tots” Program collects new, unwrapped toys for needy children in the local communities. A shiny new toy delivers the message of hope to needy youngsters.  This act of kindness will help motivate the children to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders. Please help your community by dropping off a donation at Westy Self Storage in Fairfield located at 2070 Kings Highway.

“Toys for Tots” began in 1947 when the wife of Major Bill Hendricks, USMCR handcrafted a Raggedy Ann doll and asked her husband to deliver the doll to an organization which would give it to a needy child at Christmas.  When they realized that no such organization existed, they decided to start one. That Christmas a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children.  That pilot program was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted “Toys for Tots” in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign and since then has distributed over 370 million toys to more than 173 million children.

“Over the past 10 years hundreds of families have had happier holidays due to the ‘Toys for Tots’ collection program that Westy has promoted,” said Peter Havens, Campaign Coordinator “Toys for Tots”.

Westy is open for drop off 7 days a week. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays.  Call 203-256-2777 or visit for directions.  “We are honored to again participate in the ‘Toys for Tots’ program,” said Joe Schweyer, District Director of Westy Self Storage, Fairfield. “We welcome the opportunity to assist our community and help where we can.”
