Gymja Warrior is teaming up with Toys for Tots this holiday season by serving as a drop-off point for new, unwrapped gifts through December 13.
For more than 70 years, the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots initiative has collected and distributed more than 16 million toys, nationwide to nearly seven million children each year.
Gifts can be brought to Gymja Warrior locations in Danvers (150R Andover Street) and Woburn (10U Gill Street) during regular business hours, or a donation can be made via a check or money order if made out to Toys for Tots.
“Our goal is to continue support our local communities and families in need during a time of year when they really need it,” said Gymja Warrior owner Joshua Rudin. “No family should have to choose between paying bills and buying gifts. Both of our locations are near the local malls so we encourage people to buy an extra gift or two while they are out shopping, and then drop it off to us on their way home.”
Gymja Warrior is also hosting its final charity open gym session on Friday, Oct. 26 in Woburn from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. with 100% of the profits benefiting the Greater Lawrence Disaster Relief Fund and families affected by the gas explosions in Andover, North Andover, and Lawrence.
In conjunction with the Essex County Community Foundation, the open gyms will feature certified professionals teaching Ninja Warrior, Parkour and Aerial Awareness. All ages are welcome and admission is $25 for one hour and $40 for all three hours.
In addition, on Saturday, Oct. 27, a Gymja Warrior team will participate in the VisionWalk charity event in honor of a Gymja Warrior coach who suffers from Retinitis Pigmentosa, a genetic disorder that causes tunnel vision, decreased night vision and blindness.
