12 Days of Christmas Celebration for Toys for Tots

12 Days of Christmas - Bus Interior
From December 2nd to December 13th, Schell Brothers had the privilege to work with Delmarva Broadcasting and Eagle 97.7 in the first ever 12 Days of Christmas Celebration! For 12 days straight, 12 hours a day, Eagle 97.7’s morning show personalities Petch and Paula were stationed right out front of our office collecting all kinds of donations for the Sussex and Kent County Toys for Tots.
Just a few days into the event, DART First State donated the Schell Brothers wrapped 30ft. bus for us to use, which created a new challenge for all of us working on the project. We NEEDED to fill that bus full of toys by the end of the 12 days. We were more than excited that after 57 bikes, over 70 coats, and thousands of toys, not only did we fill the bus, we OVER stuffed it!
Between the cold, the wind, the rain, and even some snow, Mother Nature couldn’t stop our community from rallying together and provided hundreds of kids with a Christmas they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to have.
On behalf of everyone at Schell Brothers, Petch and Paula, and the Eagle 97.7 team we would all like to say THANK YOU for the time that many of you, and many of your companies took to come out and visit us at our office, and donate items to Toys for Tots. It’s truly amazing to see what we can do as a community when we are working together and we hope that you continue, into the new year, to give back to those who need it.
Our mission from the very beginning of the 12 Days of Christmas was to encourage everyone to help us spread the Holiday Cheer this season, and I think it’s safe to say, Mission Complete.
Happy Holidays to all!
