The holidays are one of the most wonderful times of the year. There’s a contagious feeling of joy and generosity that’s can be hard to avoid. But during all of the celebrations, it’s important to think of those who are less fortunate. There are many people in our community that are still struggling to put food on the table, and presents under the tree. That’s why Marrins Moving is proud to team up with the Salvation Army and the Capital City Clauses to work to benefit underprivileged families in the area. Together, we can help make the season bright for thousands of families throughout our community.

24 Years of Toys for Christmas

The Jingle Ball has been taking place for more than 20 years, and has come a long way from its humble beginnings. It all started in 1993 as a group of friends wanting to raise toys for the Salvation Army’s Christmas Cheer program. The Christmas Cheer program is dedicated to helping make sure that families in need will have something under the tree on Christmas morning. Thanks to the Christmas Cheer program, deserving families and thousands of children are able to open presents around the Triangle.

Today, the Jingle Ball is in its 24th year and has become one of the largest toy drives and biggest charity parties of the season. In fact, the event has become so successful that they sell out of tickets to the event every year. With more than 2500 attendees the program is able to raise tons of toys for underprivileged families, and bring a lot of smiles to homes all over the Triangle on Christmas morning. All the toys that are purchased are donated to the Salvation Army of Wake County’s Christmas Center. Every year, this 25,000 foot warehouse is turned into a Winter wonderland where registered families are able to find gifts for their families for the holidays.

Serving Our Community

Marrins Moving is pleased to be able to pitch in and help out with this year’s event. Our business is happy to give trucks, manpower, and additional donations to further help underprivileged families around the area. Our company has been helping move the Triangle area to greener pastures since 1997. The community has been so good to us over the years that we wanted to find a way to be able to give back. We’re thankful to the Salvation Army and the Capital City Clauses for presenting us with an opportunity to give to the less fortunate.
