THE PATRICK SHIFFLETT FOUNDATION
Toys For Tots
Patrick loved helping his family decorate the Christmas tree every year. His height and strength made him very handy at tackling the job. But as the Shifflett family found themselves approaching their first Christmas with Patrick gone, they struggled to celebrate the season without their son and brother. In December 2016, the Shifflett family, in the spirit of the season, chose to donate to Toys for Tots on behalf of the Patrick Shifflett Foundation. At an event coordinated by Clarksburg Baseball Inc., Walter, Lily, Jamie, Steven and Nick Shifflett presented the check to a representative from the Marine Corps Reserve. Due to the large donation, the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve recognized the Foundation with a Commander’s Award for outstanding achievement in support of the 2016 Toys for Tots Program. Toys for Tots helps to fulfill the Christmas dreams of our nation’s neediest children. That goal is at the heart of The Patrick Shifflett Foundation and the Shifflett family will continue to work to help as many people as they can in Patrick’s name.
DECEMBER 2019 ANNUAL DONATION TO TOYS FOR TOTS
The magical spirit of Christmas giving was in the air at Grill Marx on Monday December 9, 2019. Kids and adults piled toys and gifts into donation boxes for Clarksburg Baseball’s annual toy drive for Toys for Tots. After the gifts were donated, the Patrick Shifflett Foundation presented a check for $2000 to Toys for Tots, in the hope that all our nation’s neediest children will have their Christmas dreams come true. For the 4th year in a row, the Foundation has chosen to remember Patrick’s spirit of giving by supporting this worthy cause.
DECEMBER 2018 ANNUAL DONATION TO TOYS FOR TOTS
DECEMBER 2017 ANNUAL DONATION TO TOYS FOR TOTS
With another donation in December 2017 (pictured below), the Patrick Shifflett Foundation has chosen to make this an annual event.
Additionally, during the 2017 holiday season, Corinne Shifflett (cousin of Patrick) partnered with The Patrick Shifflett Foundation, Girl Scouts of Clarksburg, and New Dawn Fitness to collect toys and cash donations for the Toys-for-Tots charity. The plan called for a toy drive via the Girl Scouts and New Dawn Fitness – then The Foundation provided matching funds for the value of the toys collected. The effort was extremely successful, raising just over $5,500 in toys and monetary gifts.
