(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / November 26, 2018) - As shoppers head to the stores and take to cyberspace to do their holiday shopping this holiday season, AAA Oklahoma hopes they’ll consider adding a gift to donate to Toys for Tots. AAA Oklahoma is pleased to serve as a public donation site to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots gift drive to benefit local children in need.
AAA members, our associates, and the general public may bring a new, unwrapped toy to one of these AAA Oklahoma stores now through December 14:
- 2121 E. 15 St., Tulsa
- 10051 S. Yale, Tulsa
- 8013 S. Sheridan Rd., Tulsa
- 112 S.E. Frank Phillips Blvd., Bartlesville

“Oklahomans know AAA for emergency roadside rescues, insurance and travel services,” says Mark Madeja, Senior Specialist of Public and Government Affairs, “but we are also concerned about those in need throughout our communities. We thought that since our associates are already contributing to Toys for Tots, why not open it up to those who drive by our convenient locations in Oklahoma cities.”
According to the Toys for Tots official website, all toys should remain unwrapped for donation. Gifts are accepted for children up to 16 years old. Toys for Tots prefers not to accept realistic looking weapons and gifts with food. If donated, such items will not be distributed.
