Toys for Tots Foundations Teams with Oil and Gas Industry to Bring Holiday Cheer

For the fifth year in a row Ohio’s oil and gas industry is partnering with the Toys for Tots Foundation to distribute toys throughout southeastern Ohio. Many churches, social organizations, local businesses among others collect toys this time of year for the Foundation’s efforts, and the oil and gas industry is coming together with the Ohio Oil and Gas Association (OOGA) to coordinate the distribution of the toys to local families in need.

OOGA’s members that are participating this year are MarkWest, Ascent Resources, EdgeMarc Energy, XTO Energy and Williams.

Carroll County resident and Foundation Coordinator Deb Oberlin is once again leading the entire effort not only for her home county but most of southeast Ohio. According to Deb who has been honored by the United States Marine Corp and Duracell over the years for her longtime efforts for the Foundation, “Each year my family and I work to provide toys for the kids of Appalachia through the Foundation and appreciate our partners in the oil and gas industry.”

Ohio Oil and Gas Association spokesman Mike Chadsey says, “we are so grateful for Deb and her entire team at the Toys for Tots Foundation for the willingness to work with us and our member companies on toy collection and distribution, as we know there is a need in our operating areas and we want to do our part to serve our neighbors.”

Deadline to register is Friday, December 7th.
