Jacksonville, Fla. (Nov. 10, 2010) -- Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) is pleased to announce its sponsorship of a Toys for Tots Christmas Train riding on the FEC rail line between Jacksonville and Miami on Saturday, December 11, 2010.
FEC’s Christmas Train will give its employees and their families an opportunity to contribute to the Toys for Tots program in the communities along the east coast of Florida that FEC touches every day. In coordination with the Toys for Tots organizations in these communities, a contribution of toys will be delivered to Toys for Tots representatives at the locations below by Santa Claus, who will be riding on the Christmas Train. In addition to the representatives from Toys for Tots, representatives of the United States Marine Corps will also be on hand to receive the donated toys to be later distributed in their communities. FEC’s employees and their families will be at each location to greet Santa in support of the Toys for Tots program.
The Christmas Train will stop at Jacksonville, St. Augustine, New Smyrna Beach, City Point, Fort Pierce, West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. FEC hopes that this will begin a great tradition along the east coast of Florida in support of the communities in which FEC employees work every day.
