McDonald’s Saipan donated over 600 Happy Meal toys to Karidat for its annual Toys for Tots drive that benefits children from low-income families.

McDonald’s Saipan general manager Marcia Ayuyu said they support Toys for Tots each year.

“This year, we included about four kinds of Happy Meal toys as our way of giving back to the community for all the support we have received through all these years, and also with the hope of putting smiles on the children’s faces,” Ayuyu said.

Ayuyu, McDonald Saipan McDonald’s Saipan marketing officer Ana Olaes and restaurant manager Emmanuel Bautista presented the cartons of Happy Meal toys to Karidat executive director Angie V. Guerrero and administrative officer Judy Pangelinan at McDonald’s Middle Road branch.

The donations of McDonald’s will be included in the other toys collected through Toys for Tots and will be distributed to parents by Karidat.

This year’s Toys for Tots is spearheaded by Marianas Health Services.

Its associate administrator for administrative services, Maria Pangelinan, said: “We are very grateful for the response from the community. We will be presenting all the toys at the Karidat office.”

Karidat is still accepting toy donations which should be unwrapped so they can be matched to the age and gender of the recipients.

You can drop your toy donations at Marianas Health Services beside Morgen Building and San Jose Church on Beach Road. For more information, call 233-4646 or email info@marianashealth.com. You can also call Karidat at 234-5248.
