The UPS Store® Announces $100,000 Book Donation To New York, New Jersey Schools

The UPS Store, with support from The UPS Foundation, announced it will donate $100,000 worth of books to four school districts affected by Hurricane Sandy - Keansburg and Asbury Park in New Jersey and New York City Districts 08 and 21. The UPS Store is a five-year supporter of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation and sponsor of the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.

Participating The UPS Store franchise owners help drive the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, a year-round initiative of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, by raising funds that benefit local children in need. The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation uses every dollar donated to purchase books for less fortunate children in the communities in which the donations were made.

“Over the past five years, our center owners and customers have been committed to supporting the Toys for Tots Literacy Program,” said Tim Davis, president of The UPS Store, Inc. “It’s a wonderful feeling to know that, this year, in addition to benefitting communities around the country, we are able to provide additional support to Hurricane Sandy victims as well.”

To present the donations to the school districts, The UPS Store and Marine Toys for Tots Foundation will host a special ceremony at Joseph C. Caruso School in Keansburg, NJ March 27 at 9am, to award the books to the faculty, teachers and students of the nine beneficiary schools, including: Bradley Elementary School, Thurgood Marshall Elementary School, Asbury Park Middle School, Joseph C Caruso School, Port Monmouth Road School, Joseph R. Bolger Middle School, P.S. 253, P.S. 107 and P.S. 90 Edna Cohen School.

Throughout 2012, The UPS Store network raised more than $420,000 towards the Toys for Tots Literacy Program.
