2016 Toys for Tots Bike Drive

 

The Roofing Contractors Association of Texas is proud to be a 2016 National Corporate Sponsor for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.

EXTENDING DEADLINE - KEEP UP THE MOMENTUM!
RCAT has set a goal to donate 1,000 bicycles and bike helmets to Toys for Tots for distribution to children all over Texas this holiday season.  RCAT is soliciting donations in the amount of $125.00 to purchase a new bicycle with a helmet from each of our members and their respective companies.  Any other denomination can also be donated and those funds will be combined to purchase bikes and helmets.

WAYS TO ENCOURAGE DONATIONS
Various RCAT member roofing contractors and suppliers will be providing donation drop off locations for any new bicycles, helmets or other unwrapped new toy donations. If you own or help administer an office, please implement one of these ideas today:

  • Hang flyer in office, or print to add in holiday cards.
  • Post a Giveaway on Facebook - every person who donates to Toys to Tots will get put in a drawing to win the prize.
  • Advertise Roof Promotions - 1) For every roof sold in the month of December, your company will donate a bike to Toys for Tots; 2) For every person who donates a bike to Toys for Tots will receive a $100 off coupon for a new roofing system, this could also include a free upgraded product instead of the $100 off; and, 3) For every $1 donated to Toys for Tots customer can receive up to a certain amount of your company’s choice to be used towards that customer’s new roofing system.
  • Host Christmas Party - for every donation made over $100 or donation of a bike is entered into a raffle for a free item such as a TV, or smaller gift value for smaller donation amount.
  • Additional promotion ideas for the Marine Toys for Tots bike drive!

RCAT is currently organizing teams and team captains across Texas.  RCAT local area captains will work directly with Marine TFT Coordinators.  This will enable RCAT to communicate directly with their Coordinators to fulfill the needs of the children in all areas and communities across the State. If you are interested in being a captain, please let us know ASAP! As local captains and drop off locations are announced they will be put on our website and in the regular Enews publications.

2016 has undoubtedly been a great year for the roofing industry and RCAT feels it is important as an association to give back! The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a great cause and there are many families with children across Texas that are deserving of our efforts. Remember how great it was to get a new bike at Christmas time? It’s only 58 DAYS AWAY so time is running out! Please help us make that possible for 1,000 children this year by submitting a tax deductible donation. Thank you to all those that have donated already - see Donor List.

The donation deadline extended!
