Terex Construction gives large gift to Toys for Tots
Terex Construction, manufacturers of equipment for use in various industries, including construction, infrastructure, quarrying, mining, shipping and transportation, gave more than $45,000 worth of ASV compact track loader die-cast toys to Toys for Tots in Minnesota. The toys were given to more than 700 children during the 2009 holidays.
“Donations to ‘Toys for Tots’ were down this year,” says Martha Sammis, the state’s Toys for Tots coordinator. “These toys will probably be the only gifts many of these children receive this year, so this generous donation from Terex Construction will make a big difference.”
Terex delivered six pallets of ASV compact track loader die-cast models, approximately 3,000 toys, to the Toys for Tots donation center.
“Since acquiring ASV, Inc. (March 2008), Terex Construction has had a significant presence in Minnesota, and particularly in the local community,” says Lisa Walsh, general manager for the Terex plant in Grand Rapids. “Our Toys for Tots donation this year is just one way that we are able to give back to the community that has welcomed us and supported our business.”
