The parents and students of
Roosevelt School in Roxbury, NJ. ran a Toys For Tots Campaign this
year. Here on Thursday, December 18 Th., President Randy Emr and MTA
member Dave Steinert arrived at the school in Randy's 1967 M35 and
supervised the students as they loaded the toys on to the Deuce.
Here are all the students
helping load the many new unwrapped toys into the Randy's Deuce.
Even more unwrapped toys, big
job handled by our small troopers.
Randy and Dave then delivered the toys to John's M35 parked at the Mobil Station in Landing.
John arrived at the Mobil Station on
evening, December 18 Th. to pack and inventory the toys for the next
day's trip to the Marine Corps’ warehouse. As he rolled up the tarp to
make his way into the back of the M35, he was pleasantly surprised by
the accumulation of even more toys. As he started neatly packing the
toys in his
truck, John Sonono, the manager of the Mobil Station, arrived to tell
John he had a few more boxes of toys inside the gas station for him.
The following morning, John's daughter, Jessica asked her father to stop with his M35 at her workplace, DPC Corporation, Flanders NJ, on his way to the distribution warehouse. When John arrived at her workplace, he found a few more boxes of toys collected by Jessica and her fellow employees. One of the “toys” was a brand new bicycle. By now, the back of his deuce was packed with toys.
at the Marine Corps’ distribution warehouse in Hawthorne, NJ. The
marines were very enthusiastic about the 653 toys collected by John and
the MTA. The toys were quickly unloaded from John's truck and loaded
onto distribution trucks that were on their way to needy children
throughout the state.
