PHILADELPHIA, PA — Five Below, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIVE) announced that it has closed this year’s annual campaign drive for Toys for Tots, the Marine Corps organization with a mission of collecting and distributing new, unwrapped toys to less fortunate children throughout the holiday season. The Company raised a total of $3.1 Million in toys this year, and is proud to continue working with such an important and impactful organization.
The holiday campaign gave customers the opportunity to make a contribution toward the purchase of $5 board games and craft kits that were donated to Toys for Tots. Additionally, Five Below partnered with local and regional Toys for Tots coordinators to organize and execute more than 30 “Stuff the Truck” events at Five Below stores across the country, during which customers could purchase products to gift directly to local Toys for Tots campaigns in their area.
“As a retailer founded on the support of children and families, we are honored to once again be able to partner with Toys for Tots to help them help bring the joy of the holidays and send a message of hope to the country’s less fortunate children,” said Michael Romanko, Chief Merchandising Officer of Five Below. “As always, the incredible kindness and contributions of our customers continue to inspire us, and play a significant role in making the holidays brighter for children in need. This is the 75th anniversary of the Toys for Tots program – we congratulate them on more than seven decades of giving, and look forward to continuing to support their mission for years to come.”
Five Below’s partnership with Toys for Tots is part of the retailer’s ongoing commitment to supporting philanthropic organizations dedicated to improving the lives of children, teens and families. As a result of the generosity of the company’s amazing customers, Five Below has been able to help make a difference in countless lives over the years, and truly values its close relationship with this outstanding organization.
“We are very pleased to receive the continued support from Five Below stores and welcome them as a National Corporate Sponsor of our 2022 Holiday Campaign,” said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, Vice President of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “This has been an especially difficult year to raise support and collect toys due to high inflation and a struggling economy. Five Below has gone above and beyond allowing Toys for Tots to expand its reach and fulfill the holiday dreams of thousands of children who otherwise may have been forgotten.”
