The holidays are a great time to reconnect with family and take a break from the usual schedule to celebrate the season of giving, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community and donate. Through the efforts of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, Toys For Tots, Walmart and Coca-Cola Beverages Florida you can do both at the same time by donating a purchased toy valued at $5 or more from Walmart locations in Central Florida to receive a free kids admission at the popular Winter Haven theme park.
All you have to do is drop off a new unwrapped toy, purchased at any Walmart location from Tampa to Daytona Beach (click here for a list of participating stores), in a Toys For Tots collection bin near the entrance to the theme park along with a receipt of your purchase. The Kids Go Free discount, which is valid through Dec. 31, 2016, is applied with the purchase of an adult ticket.
The donated toys will benefit kids in Florida’s Polk County, home of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, through the Toys for Tots program.
“As a vacation destination built for kids, we’re delighted to work with other businesses that share our desire to brighten the spirits of children,” Adrian Jones, general manager of LEGOLAND Florida Resort, said.
While you’re shopping for that donated toy, you just might run into LEGOLAND Model Citizens as they will be out in full force at several Walmart locations in Central Florida with lots of fun planned for the little ones. Check out the schedule here:
