Thursday, Dec. 20, is the final day to bring toys and financial contributions to the Coldwell Banker Bullard Realty and Coldwell Banker American Land Mart offices which are serving as drop-off points for the annual U. S. Marine Corps Reserve “Toys for Tots” campaign.

This year’s campaign is the 60th annual “Toys for Tots” drive, and this is the 26nd year that the Coldwell Banker Bullard organization has participated in the effort.
George Wiley, managing broker of the Peachtree City/Fayette County office, is coordinating the project for the Coldwell Banker Bullard organization.

The real estate company’s offices are serving only as collection points. The Coldwell Banker Bullard organization does not distribute toys, as this is done through local churches, local Department of Family and Children Services offices, or the Marines.

Area residents wanting to contribute can drop off a new, unwrapped toy at a Coldwell Banker Bullard office, Coldwell Banker American Land Mart, or one of the other collection points, and the Marines will take care of the rest, distributing the toys to needy children through local charitable organizations. The website address for the campaign in the Atlanta area is

For those preferring to contribute money to the campaign, a check made out to “Marine Toys for Tots Foundation” will be accepted. Cash donations will help the Marines buy toys at deeply discounted prices, and donations are 100 percent tax deductible.

Coldwell Banker Bullard offices are located at 238 Stockbridge Rd., Jonesboro; 4295 Jodeco Rd., McDonough; 201 Prime Point, Peachtree City; 1605 East Hwy. 34, Newnan; 244 Odell Rd. (Ste. 6) in Griffin; 658 West Third Street, Jackson;. and 889 Commerce Dr., Conyers (both Bullard’s Conyers office and its affiliated company, Coldwell Banker American Land Mart, are located here).

The “Toys for Tots” drive has grown from a small project in the Los Angeles area to nationwide effort. The campaign has the support of a wide array of other organizations, groups, committees, local businesses, and national corporations. In 2005, Toys for Tots delivered more than 18.5 million toys to over 7.4 million children.
