Scion Offers Care Packages to U.S. Servicemen and Women This Holiday Season to Show Its Appreciation

November 30, 2010
TORRANCE, Calif. — Nov. 30, 2010 — In the spirit of the holiday season, Scion, a division of Toyota Motor Sales, has launched the Scion Holiday Mail Drop.  This program offers active duty U.S. military personnel the opportunity to receive a Scion cinch sack filled with complimentary clothing and accessories.
“There is no way to truly give back the amount that the servicemen and servicewomen of our country have given to us,” says Jack Hollis, vice president of Scion. “It’s a small way for Scion to offer its appreciation for their outstanding service and dedication.”
While supplies last, men and women of active military status can log on to to register for their holiday pack.
The Scion Holiday Mail Drop program is part of a larger military initiative for the brand which has, thus far, included an earlier military care package program, 2009’s holiday gifting program, and the Battle of the Builds military design challenge completed earlier this year.  To support U.S. troops, Scion is working closely with Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps commercial sponsorship units as well as base Auto Skills Centers.
