On Sunday, December 4th, 2022, the Dimmitt Automotive Group kicked off the holiday season by giving back to the community during our Toys for Tots Rally. This is Dimmitt’s 19th annual Toys for Tots Rally.
Toys for Tots, run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, distributes toys to the children of families who cannot afford gifts during the holiday season. This amazing program has a positive impact on a number of people’s lives, and directly impacts families in our Tampa Bay community.
All vehicles that participated in the 2022 rally donated loads of 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 100 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. Some vehicles that joined the rally included various supercars, classic vehicles, a Ferrari and many more! The vehicles formed two lanes and wrapped around the Dimmitt Ultra Lux 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 Midtown Tampa where everyone unloaded all the donated toys.
We want to thank 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. This event couldn’t happen without your support.
Thank you so much to everyone who generously donated to our Toys for Tots Rally. We truly appreciate your donations! Thank you for making a difference in our Tampa Bay community this holiday season.
