Toys For Tots

The parents and students of Lincoln 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.

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 Thursday 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.

 John arrived 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.

John would like to thank all the MTA members who contributed to the campaign. A special thank you to his daughter, Jessica…Randy, and Jim. He would also like to thank the citizens of Landing, Roxbury and Hopatcong…the Lincoln Roosevelt School in Roxbury…John Sonono, the manager of the Mobil Service Station in Landing and CWO Mike Laner and the Dover National Guard OMS7 Team for their support.
