COCONUT CREEK, FLORIDA – (December 15, 2021) — Minto Communities USA and its employees teamed up to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots program, raising $32,650 that will go towards buying toys for South Florida kids this Christmas season.
Typically, employees of the Florida homebuilder would bring toys to their annual Holiday party, but for a second straight year the party was put on hold due to the pandemic. Instead, they were asked to make monetary donations which were then matched by The Minto Foundation, the company’s charitable arm. The total amount raised in 2021 surpassed 2020 by over $5,000.
“We are incredibly blessed to be able to support a wonderful program like Toys for Tots,” said Mike Belmont, president of Minto Communities USA. “I am so proud of the way our employees stepped up for another year to make sure kids get something fun to open on Christmas day.”
“I would like to thank Minto employees and the Minto Foundation for their kindness; this will really boost our campaign and help us finish strong this year,” said Staff Sgt. Socmaria Montana.
The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation set a goal of collecting toys for 70,000 kids in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties.
Based in Coconut Creek, Florida, Minto Communities USA has been developing communities and building award-winning homes throughout Florida for the past four decades.
