Smith Mountain Lake, VA (December 19, 2007) – The Willard Companies and its subsidiaries including Prudential Waterfront Properties, Smith Mountain Building Supply, Westlake Cinema and The Westlake, The Waterfront and The Water’s Edge Country Clubs, partnered with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots organization for its fourth annual toy drive.

Over the course of a five-week campaign, employees, country club members, retail tenants and customers donated hundreds of new, unwrapped toys which will be distributed as Christmas gifts to needy children in the Smith Mountain Lake, Franklin County and Roanoke Valley communities. In addition, the following retail stores including VitaZen, Irresistible’s, Haywood’s Jewelers, Good Looks Salon, Cottage Gate, Provisions & RSVP, and Davidson’s participated in the toy drive. According to Christopher Finley, Director of Marketing for The Willard Companies, “Our Toys for Tots drive continues to evolve each year. It’s humbling knowing that these generous contributions have enabled the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve to help fulfill the Christmas dreams of our region’s neediest children.”

The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to “collect new, unwrapped toys during November and December each year and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.” U.S. Marine Corps picked up the toys on Wednesday, December 19 and will distribute prior to the holidays.
