On Friday, December 6, from 9am – 4pm, FAO Schwarz will help New Yorkers and visitors – young and old – get into the Christmas spirit by hosting a special holiday event filled with festive entertainment, sweet treats and more. Stationed throughout the store and outside on The Plaza, U.S. Marines will report for duty, encouraging visitors to make monetary and toy donations to Toys for Tots.
The first 150 toy donors will have the opportunity to decorate a special, holiday-themed cookie from Cookie Party and pose for a photo with a Marine and the FAO Schwarz Toy Soldier. Each photo taken will be featured in a special photo album on the company’s official Facebook fan page at Facebook.com/FAOSchwarz. And, customers who visit the store’s all-new Build-A-Bear Workshop on Level Two will be invited to make a special “Stuffed With Hugs” bear, which will then be donated to Toys for Tots.
All items donated to Toys for Tots at FAO Schwarz will be distributed directly to children in need in the community, making this a truly local program.
FAO Schwarz is located at 767 Fifth Avenue at 58th Street. For any questions about the event please call the store at 212-644-9400.
