Donate new unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots at Lakewood Dog Park. Visit: www.LakewoodDogPark.org for information, to join FLDP or to make a donation to support the dog park.

Donate new unwrapped toys to Toys for Tots at Lakewood Dog Park, on Saturday, Dec. 8th & Sunday, Dec. 9th, from 10:00am to 2:00pm both days. 

Friends of the Lakewood Dog Park (FLDP) is sponsoring this Toys for Tots donation drive as part of their 2012 community outreach mission. FLDP is the non-profit volunteer organization that supplies amenities at Lakewood Dog Park and manages the dog park web site, Facebook page, Twitter feeds and electronic and in-park communication to members and park visitors. 

Lakewood Dog Park, 1699 Metropark Dr., Lakewood, Ohio, is located just south of the Emerald Necklace Marina in the Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland Metropark, and adjacent to the City of Lakewood, Ohio Waste Water Treatment Plant. 

Pete Beuck, Friends of the Lakewood Dog Park member and Chairperson for the 2-day event commented, “It’s such a great cause at this time of year. We hope people will be really generous and stop by Saturday and Sunday with lots of toys for the kids. We have a lot of military veterans who visit the dog park and young adults that are spreading the word and are volunteering to help.”

Laurie Sekeres, 2012 sponsor of Friends of the Lakewood Dog Park says, “I’ll have a Subaru Outback at the dog park parking lot on Sunday, Dec. 9th. We want to ‘Stuff the Subaru’ to overflowing with new toys!” Laurie, a tireless volunteer and supporter of Lakewood Dog Park and area animal groups, is a Sr. Sales Consultant at Ganley Westside Subaru and can be reached at 216-513-9565 or at LaurieSekeres@hotmail.com  

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

Over the 58 years of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program, Marines have distributed more than 332.5 million toys to 158.7 million needy children. This charitable endeavor has made U.S. Marines the unchallenged leaders in looking after needy children at Christmas. 

Over its 14 year life span, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation has supplemented local toy collections with more than 55.5 million toys valued at more than $284 million; plus has provided promotion and support materials valued at over $3.2 million.
