The UPS Store supports Toys for Tots reading program

12 December 2013

UPS (NYSE: UPS) subsidiary The UPS Store said it has launched Vote for Your Favorite Scholastic Classic, aimed to raise literacy awareness and support for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, an effort dedicated to providing our nation´s most economically disadvantaged children the ability to compete academically and succeed in life.

Through Dec. 20, people can visit the Toys for Tots Facebook page to vote for their favorite of six classic childhood titles from Scholastic – The Secret Garden, Make Way for Ducklings, Charlotte´s Web, Stone Soup, The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Three Little Pigs. For every vote, The UPS Store will purchase that same book for a child in need, up to USD10,000 worth of books.

The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is a not for profit organization authorized by the US Marine Corps to provide fundraising and other necessary support for the annual Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program.

With more than 4,300 locations, The UPS Store network comprises the nation´s largest franchise system of retail shipping, postal, print and business service centers. The UPS Store locations in the US are independently owned and operated by licensed franchisees of The UPS Store, Inc. For additional information on The UPS Store, visit www.theupsstore.com.
