It means so much to all of us at Car-Mart,” Walthall continued. “For November and December, it’s the most important thing we can do. We are grateful for the opportunity to help ensure that children who have to be hospitalized during the holidays will enjoy some holiday magic.”
Car-Mart’s November promotion, “Holiday Toy Drive”, runs from November 1 – 30.

Car-Mart also welcomes its customers and local communities to donate toys to children for the holiday season.
Car-Mart’s locations will serve as drop-off spots for those who choose to participate in the Holiday Toy Drive. Car-Mart associates will deliver the donated toys to children at the hospitals in December.
“We invite everyone to celebrate the season of giving by donating a toy or two,” said Walthall. “We want every child to have a joyous holiday season and a merry Christmas.”
