Roberto Rivera (center) a $500 check and an estimated $2,000 in toys for local underprivileged children Dec. 14, 2010 aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola.
MGySgt. Roberto Rivera, Toys for Tots Coordinator for Marine Aviation Training Support Group-24 graciously accepted a $500 check and a truckload of toys from Pen Air Federal Credit Union on behalf of the Toys for Tots Foundation.

“We thank you from the bottom of our hearts,” Rivera said. “We couldn’t do it without your support.”

Pen Air FCU President and Chief Executive Officer Ron Fields said he was more than happy to offer all Pen Air FCU offices as drop-off locations.

“Pen Air FCU has supported Toys for Tots for several years now,” Fields said. “I am extremely proud of the continued outpouring of generosity from all of our employees and member-owners to help underprivileged children.”

The Marine Corps spent countless hours setting up drop box locations, conducting fundraisers, and spreading the word about the Toys for Tots Foundation and how the foundation benefits underprivileged children in the community.

Along with a $500 check, an estimated $2,000 in toys was donated as well.
