Bluewater’s Annual Toys for Tots Drive
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve kicked off the holiday season with our annual toy drive! Bluewater’s Annual Toys for Tots Drive is all about celebrating the goodness of the holiday season by giving back to those in need. Our goal is to bring as many people together to help the cause and give toys to children and teens who wouldn’t normally receive an abundance of gifts. Each year, Bluewater employees, friends, locals, and guests all come together to drop off wrapped new toys at designated locations.
Drop Off Locations
You can drop off your new, unwrapped toys at either of our office locations:
- EMERALD ISLE OFFICE – 200 Mangrove Drive, Emerald Isle, NC 28594
- ATLANTIC BEACH OFFICE – 407 Atlantic Beach Causeway 6F & 6D, Atlantic Beach, NC 28512
Pick up will be December 14th so please be sure to drop off all your toys before the deadline. We’re looking forward to making this year’s Toys for Tots drive, and each thereafter, bigger and better than the one before. Being a community surrounded by Marine Corps Bases, we proudly support the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
