Leicester/Weaverville – Two local Edward Jones offices are joining forces to support the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program by using their offices as a drop-off location for this year’s toy drive.

The offices of Jeff Weller, a local Edward Jones financial advisor in the Leicester and Erwin Hill communities, and David Hartman, a local Edward Jones financial advisor in Weaverville and the North Buncombe community, are helping the Marines with their annual toy drive.

Local residents may help make a difference for children in the area by bringing in a new, unwrapped toy to Weller’s office, located at Georgetown Center, 929 New Leicester Highway, Suite 9, Asheville, NC 28806, during regular business hours now through Tuesday, December 6th.

Hartman is asking you to please bring your donation to our office at 2 Monticello Village Drive, Suite 101a, Weaverville, by December 3rd. If you are unable to drop off your donation at Hartman’s office, he’ll be happy to pick it up. Just call his office and let them know. Neither office is accepting monetary gifts.

“With the holiday season around the corner, we are all getting ready for the festivities,” Weller said. “And as this is the season of giving, now is a great time to remember the less fortunate in our community.”

“This is the time of year when we pause to reflect on the many things in our lives for which we are grateful. “It’s also an ideal time to consider ways we can make a positive impact in our community,” said Hartman.
