ROCKWALL, TX – November 4, 2021 — A local chapter of the Woodmen Life insurance company went Christmas shopping recently to help bring joy to families this holiday season.
Each quarter, Woodmen Life Chapter 4660 based in Wylie participates in a project to benefit local communities and charities. For the fourth quarter project this year, the chapter went shopping for items to give to the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program in Rockwall County, purchasing $367.41 worth of toys to donate along with a monetary donation of $500. On Oct. 28, the chapter presented the $867.41 donation check to Toys for Tots at the Veterans Resource and Outreach Center in Rowlett.
Woodmen Life is a life insurance company that has around 1,000 chapters across the country, all of which strive to give back to charities in the communities they serve.
“Our chapter tries to donate about $8,000 per year to organizations voted by the chapter members,” said Juan Cordova, President of Woodmen Life Chapter 4660, whose wife Mary Ann serves as the secretary for the chapter. “My wife and I are retired and this is a way for us to help those in need.”
The U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children. Each year, the toys are collected and distributed to families in need so that less fortunate children can experience the joy of Christmas. Learn more at www.toysfortots.org.
