Reaching More Families in Need through Digital Accessibility

WASHINGTON (Aug. 11, 2020) – With many families impacted by COVID-19, the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation is working to support children and families year-round, not just during the holidays. By selecting User1st as its website accessibility partner, Toys for Tots ensures people with disabilities can support Toys for Tots and enable parents with disabilities to request toys for their child.

“Ensuring accessibility for all is important to us” said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “After discovering some limitations on our website from a recent audit, we reached out to User1st who was able to efficiently implement modifications that allow accessibility for those who are impaired. We greatly appreciate the work User1st has done for us expanding the audience for those seeking support from Toys for Tots through digital venues.”
