maurices Collects Toys to Bring Holiday Joy to Area Children

Fashion Retailer is Drop-Off Site for Holiday Toy Collection - Terrell, Texas

Children are busy making their holiday wish lists with the hope that they'll find "that special toy" under the tree. But with countless families experiencing tough financial times, many children won't find any toys waiting for them this holiday season.

maurices is pledging to do its part. The fashion retailer for young women has become a new national partner with Toys for Tots and will collect toys for disadvantaged children at its Tanger Outlet Mall location.

All new, unwrapped toys collected from November 19 to December 17 at maurices, 301 Tanger Dr Ste 211 A Terrell, will be distributed to local families by Toys For Tots.

As a special thank you, maurices will give those who make a donation a coupon for 20 percent off a regular-priced item.

"Many families are facing difficult times," said maurices Store Manager NiaChel, "but we want children to still experience the joys of the holiday season. Our hope is that this toy drive brings lots of happiness and unending smiles to the young people in our community."

Gifts are needed for children of all ages. "It's so much fun to buy little dolls and toy trucks," said Rader, "but we're also encouraging customers to think about buying presents for tweens and teens who are sometimes forgotten.

Things like board games, books, fragrances, jewelry and

accessories make great gifts for older children."

The goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver a message of hope, through a new toy during the holidays, to less fortunate youngsters. The organization estimates that there will be 1 million more children in need this holiday season.

"We're so grateful to maurices for becoming one of our newest national partners," said Bill Grein, Toys for Tots

vice president of marketing and development.

"Many of their 730 stores are located in smaller markets where there may not be a lot of programs for disadvantaged

children. Their partnership will help us bring more smiles to more children this year, which is terrific."

A good volumizing trick is to mix equal parts of hair mousse and gel together and then paint sparingly on the roots of your hair before blow drying with a make-up brush.
