On Sunday, December 5th, 2021, the Dimmitt Automotive Group kicked off the holiday season by giving. This is the 16th consecutive year that Dimmitt has participated in Toys for Tots.
Toys for Tots, run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, distributes toys to the children of families who cannot afford to buy gifts during the holiday season. This admiral program has a positive impact on a number of people’s lives, and directly impacts our Tampa Bay community.
All vehicles that participated in the 2021 rally donated new, unwrapped toys to the cause. In addition, every Dimmitt location offered a drop off box for toy donations from Thanksgiving up until the rally.
This year, over 90 vehicles of various makes and models joined the rally. With each vehicle came new, unwrapped gifts for children. All makes and models were welcome to join the rally, so a large variety of cars participated. Some vehicles that joined the rally included various supercars, classic vehicles, a Ferrari, an Aston Martin, some pickup trucks, and more! The vehicles formed two lanes and wrapped around the McLaren Tampa Bay building.
Led by the Sheriff’s Department of Hillsborough County, the drivers set out on their rally. The Rally started at the Dimmitt McLaren Showroom in St. Petersburg and traveled to the Marine Corps Toy Warehouse in Tampa where they unloaded all the donated toys.
Thank you to the deputies of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department for giving your time to support such an important cause and for escorting our drivers through Tampa Bay safely. Thank you everyone who generously donated toys. Thank you to everyone who joined us and made the rally a complete success. We truly appreciate your donations! Thank you for making a difference in our Tampa Bay community.
