UPDATE: New toy collection deadline.
Bane-Welker Equipment proudly supports the Toys for Tots 2022 campaign and will be collecting toys from all locations in Indiana and Ohio by December 2.
“We are proud to support this effort for a second consecutive year,” said Jason Bane, president of Bane-Welker Equipment. “Last year, everyone really got into it, and we had customers and employees using their Red Zone Rewards points to buy more toys for the kids.”
This type of project aligns well with Bane-Welker’s mission to have a positive impact on the communities they serve.
This year, the Toys for Tots project was started by two Bane-Welker employees, Justin Butler, a former Marine, who himself benefited from the program as a child.
“My passion for helping came from when I was a kid and once received toys from this same program,” Butler said. “It meant a lot to me back then, and I wanted to help make a difference in children’s lives now. I am very proud to be part of a company that dedicates time to such important community efforts. »
The toys will be distributed in local communities.
Last year, Remington collected the most toys, with 550. Local FFA chapters contributed to this effort. As a complex, Bane-Welker collected 1,807 toys.
