SMACNA and SMART are launching their first-ever joint holiday toy drive

“You Dream It, We Build It” seeks to bring joy to children during the holidays while also providing parents and kids a chance to learn more about a career in the sheet metal trade.

SMACNA and SMART are coordinating a joint toy drive under the theme “You Dream It, We Build It.” Realizing time is of the essence, both organizations are looking for 50Sticker-concept-3x3-(002).png members and/or chapters to participate this year in a toy drive that will provide construction toys to kids with a QR code that provides a web page with information on careers in the trades. 

To accelerate this effort, SMACNA asks members and chapters with existing toy drive programs to connect the QR code to your existing toy drives. You will not only brighten a child’s holiday by donating a toy but also promote the value of a career in the sheet metal/HVAC industry to families across the country.

As part of “You Dream It, We Build It,” SMACNA and SMART will provide you with a QR Code that links to promotional information about our industry. The QR code “sticker” needs to be affixed to each toy you donate. You can print this QR Code onto an Avery Label, and we encourage you to order either 5160 or 5162 Avery Labels now to ensure you have them on hand. We plan to email you the design QR Code on November 28. If you prefer, we mail your chapter the labels instead of printing them yourself; please let us know. We will be able to send labels to your chapter by December 9.

We are encouraging (but not requiring) the donation of construction toys to tightly connect the toys to the work of our industry and labor partners.

If you are interested in participating, please respond and let us know by Monday, November 28.
