Nov. 26, 2019—The Goodyear Blimps and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve will conduct their ninth joint maneuver in December benefiting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Public toy collection events will be hosted at the company's airship bases in Florida and Ohio. A California-based blimp crew will join Toys for Tots volunteer efforts in Los Angeles County in lieu of hosting an event.

The community is invited to bring new, unwrapped toys to donate to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program and see the Goodyear blimp in person.

The Goodyear Blimp and the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots welcome Santa to greet guests donating toys to the program.

Goodyear first nicknamed one of its blimps the "Santa Claus Express" in 1927 to spread holiday cheer across the skies of America. The company has a long history of community involvement and volunteerism within its corporate social responsibility platform, Goodyear Better Future.

Founded in 1948, it is the mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December and distribute these toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

The California base will not host a public event but will instead be volunteering with the Los Angeles County U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots – Pico Rivera campaign to collect and sort toys prior to the distribution within the community.
