November 29, 2012 – On Nov. 1, The UPS Store ® located at 3224 Yorba Linda Blvd, launched its holiday donation drive for the Toys for Tots Literacy Program, helping to deliver the gift of reading to less fortunate children in Fullerton and the north Orange County community.

“We feel that education is one of the key ways children can become successful in life. The holidays are a great time to make a positive impact by helping children break the cycle of poverty through literacy and education,” said The UPS Store owner Ramin Rafii.

Customers are asked to bring a new book for the program and a camera to take a picture with Santa who will be in the store. They also will offer a dollar off Christmas card packs with any dollar donated.
