Tuffy Offers Special $15 Tuffy Buck Gift Certificate With any New and Unwrapped Toy Donation
Toledo, OH
Helping less fortunate children experience the joys of Christmas, That’s A Tuffy! Locally owned and operated Tuffy Auto Service Centers of Kalamazoo and Portage, Michigan are proud to announce this year’s partnership with Marine Toys For Tots Foundation.

“Reaching out to our local communities has always been very important to us as a family business,” says Rick King, owner and operator of the Kalamazoo and Portage Tuffy Auto Service Centers. “Especially during these economic times in which almost every family has been impacted with job losses and wage decreases, children in our own local neighborhoods might not get gifts during this Christmas season. That’s why we wanted to get involved.”

Headlining this year’s participation with Toys For Tots, Tuffy will be offering a $15 Tuffy Buck gift certificate to any customer who brings in a new and unwrapped toy. Please be sure to contact either Tuffy store by phone at 269-375-4877 (Kalamazoo) and 269-327-9600 (Portage) for more details.

Tuffy is located in Kalamazoo at 4110 Stadium Drive, next to Don Seelye Ford. The Portage Tuffy store is located at 7027 Westnedge Avenue, at Romence Road. Store hours for both locations are 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
