Smoky Mountain Resorts Partners With Toys For Tots To Meet Community Goals

Smoky Mountain Resorts hosts Polar Plunge to draw more donations for local Toys For Tots.

Pigeon Forge, TN: Smoky Mountain Resorts is proud to announce the Toys For Tots Polar Plunge on December 6th, 2014.

Representatives from each donating business can ride down the outdoor water slide, where a group of judges will award several prizes, including Best Costume and Biggest Splash.plunge2

Leading up to the event on December 6th, establishments are encouraged to accept toys at their place of business; upon request, Smoky Mountain Resorts will provide free toy pickup to business who fill their bins.

“After discovering that local donations for Toys For Tots failed to yield what organizers expected last year, we decided to reach out to the community and organize a fun event to draw more donations,” said Kay Collier-Pittman, President of Smoky Mountain Resorts.

Smoky Mountain Resorts also encourages guests staying at any of its seven properties to donate toys; in return, they receive reward points toward future stays.

“We’re doubling our efforts as a community and a business. It’s our hope that our county joins us in this effort and provides the donations necessary to meet the goal of the local Toys For Tots chapter,” said Pittman.

A ceremony to present the selected items to Toys For Tots will be held during the Polar Plunge, with food and drinks provided by Collier Restaurant Group. Smoky Mountain Resorts will also award prizes to the top three business who secured the most donations. Donations will be accepted beginning in November, and free pickups will be provided with the assistance of Best Read Guide.
