Toys for Tots - Visions Art Gallery Named Drop Off Point for Toys for Tots
Oklahoma City, OK, November 8th, 2011: Visions Art Gallery is proud to announce, effective immediately, it has been named a drop off point for Toys for Tots! Visions will collect new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots through December 11th.
Visions Art Gallery owner, Glenn Fillmore, has been involved with Toys for Tots for over 20 years and is thrilled his gallery has been selected as a drop off point. As the owner of Abacus Enterprises, Inc., a computer company in Washington, DC, Glenn donated over $50,000 to Toys for Tots over a 20 year time frame.
Now, Glenn has announced Visions Art Gallery will give a 10% discount to anyone who brings in a new, unwrapped toy to his gallery AND donate another 10% of the sale to Toys for Tots.
In addition, Visions Art Gallery, in conjunction with the Paseo Creek Art Galleries and the Marine Corps Reserve, will have a special event on December 11th, Christmas on Paseo Creek. Art demos, food, and live music will be provided from 1PM till 4PM and The Marine Corps will be present to help take delivery of toys. Admission will be free but the donation of one (or more) toys for Toys for Tots will be much appreciated.
Glenn recommends bringing your children and letting them hand the toys to the Marines in person. What better way to let them learn how much more gratifying giving is than receiving. It will also give them a chance to meet some of the brave men and women who protect our country but still make time (their own time) to help the many needy children all over America. That’s right, every toy and 95% of all cash donations (cash donations are used to buy toys) go directly to children right here in America who would otherwise not have a Christmas.
Visions Art Gallery is a Fine Art Photography Gallery located in the heart of the Historic Paseo Arts District. Visions is open Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 6PM and Sunday 10AM to 5PM. Admission is free.
The Paseo Creek Art Galleries is made up of Visions Art Gallery, Summer Wine Art gallery and Contemporary Art Gallery, all of which are open every Sunday from 1-4PM in addition to their regular hours.
