(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico in partnership with Walmart delivered more than 300 toys for boys and girls of all ages to the Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico on Wednesday.
The toys will be distributed to children and their families later this week in time for Christmas and the upcoming holidays.
This is part of TOTE Maritime’s ongoing commitment to the people of Puerto Rico to provide relief and recovery support following Hurricane Maria. TOTE Maritime has been working around the clock to respond to the impact of Hurricane Maria since Sept. 20. TOTE Maritime employees on the island have worked every day since the storm hit.
The toy drive was led and supported by the employees of TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico as well as TOTE’s employees around the country.
“The Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico has been critical to providing food, community programming and safe spaces for the children of Puerto Rico,” said Eduardo Pagan, TOTE Maritime’s vice president and general manager, Caribbean Services. “We hope that these toys will, in some small way, help families enjoy a bit of this holiday season despite the many challenges that families continue to face.”
The Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico will be distributing the toys to families and children on Dec. 21.
