Rayovac® Kicks Off 2013 Holiday Season with Charitable Donation

Middleton, WI. - 11/12/2013

Toys For Tots Receives Batteries To Pair With Holiday Gifts

Renewing their support for the Toys for Tots Foundation, Rayovac® has generously donated a large supply of batteries to help out during the holiday season. Each battery donated will be paired with a holiday gift and given to a child in need.

Organized by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots provides joy and a message of hope to economically disadvantaged children through the gift of a new toy. To make sure no child is left powerless, Rayovac has stepped in - uniting the toys with quality batteries.

On Christmas morning, 'batteries not included' is a phrase that no child wants to hear. Rayovac has made it their mission to make sure the gifts distributed by Toys for Tots have the batteries 'included'. A yearly donation is a part of Rayovac’s way of giving back to the community that has helped the company become the leader it is today.

"The opportunity to award Toys for Tots with a donation of batteries is both an honor and a privilege," said David Carlson, Director of Marketing Communications for Rayovac. "The look on a child’s face when their new toy is powered up is quite magical and a big reason why we donate every year. Any donation no matter how big or small can go a long way in making a child’s holiday season a little brighter."
