  1. This man is a saint, and I cannot believe Toys for Tots denied his toys! That’s crazy! We donate food and toys every year around the holidays.

  2. Aww, I wonder why Toys for Tots turned him down? So odd. But you know what, I bet the other charity he donates to, is happy that they did. 😉

  3. I lived in Michigan for most of my life and we had a 10-cent can/bottle deposit so it was a regular part of my routine to cash them in. It’s a great idea to use that money for toys!

  4. It’s nice that through the cans, he get to give toys from redeemed cans. I sure hope toys for tots has a great reason why it denied this man. I usually give away clothes and supplies to communities who need them.

  5. I wonder why they turned him down.It kind of defeats the purpose. Long as they were within their rules there is no reason they should have turned him down. I mean the whole point it to help children who go without. Interesting. But I am happy he found somewhere else to donate. It’s an amazing thing he is doing! Thank you for sharing!!

  6. We try to donate food to our local food bank every year. During the holidays we participate in the adopt a child program.

  7. Here in Oklahoma you can only get money at the metal scrap yard for your cans. Our state doesn’t pay for bottles and what not. That is crazy that Toys for Tots turned him down, I guess they have their own agenda.

  8. How silly of Toys for Tots to turn this man down. I’ve never collected cans or anything like that, I don’t think we have these incentives here in Ireland.

  9. I can’t believe they turned him down. Booooo! Even though my town does not recycle, I always recycle, I lived in another state that did it and I just got accustomed to it.

  10. What a shame that they turned this man down, he’s just trying to do a nice thing. Good thing that he can give the toys to a local charity. I do not collect cans (I do not think we even get money for that in my country) but I do regularly give to a charity.

  11. This is an awesome thing to do indeed for the kids. I always return returnables. Here In MI we get .10 cents for each can or bottle. I make hats for kids in the neighborhood for Christmas is how I give back.

  12. That is so nice of you. It certainly feels good to give knowing that you’ve helped and made people happy. My son is a member of the Beta Club and we are going to do some charitable work soon. 🙂

  13. I miss growing up in New Hampshire and collecting cans! We would drop them off nearby over the Maine border and get tons of money for school shopping as kids!

  14. I love this! My husband’s work always collects water bottle tops because of a similar campaign. I wish I knew the name of it so I could share it! Thanks for bringing attention to this!
