Donated toys to benefit metro Detroit children

It's the holiday season, so while you're out shopping, why not pick up an extra gift or two for a child who is less fortunate?

Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace, the premier specialty market in metro Detroit, is helping to spread cheer to local children this holiday season through a toy collection drive.

From Thursday through Sunday, December 5-8, the public is invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the ‘Stuff-A- Bus’, parked in the Clinton Township store's parking lot, located at 17496 Hall Road.

Once the bus is packed full, the toys will be delivered to area charities including Beaumont Children’s Hospital, Orchards Children’s Services, Volunteers of America, Goodfellows, Bridgepoint and others. Staff and volunteers will then distribute the gifts to children.

“The Nino Salvaggio team is proud to lead this community-wide effort to spread joy to every boy and girl in metro Detroit,” said Kirk Taylor, president of Nino Salvaggio. “We ask everyone to come to our parking lot to donate a new and unwrapped holiday gift to make sure our Stuff-A-Bus is stuffed so full, we’ll need to hire eight reindeer of our own to help pull it down Hall Road.”

Pop radio station WDVD FM 96.3 is helping to spread word about the toy drive. Donation hours at Nino Salvaggio are: 6 a.m. - 10 p.m., Thursday & Friday, Dec. 5 and 6; 9 a.m. - 10 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7; and 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8.

Nino Salvaggio International Marketplace was founded by the late Nino Salvaggio in St. Clair Shores in 1979. With stores in Clinton Township, St. Clair Shores and Troy, the fresh gourmet market offers a complete grocery shopping experience in a specialty store setting. The markets boast one of the most extensive fresh produce departments in the area along with exceptional meats, fresh in-store bakery, specialty wines and prepared foods to go and much more.
