WASHINGTON, Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- 1-800-Pack-Rat, LLC is giving back to the Washington, DC community by donating multiple portable storage units for the collection of toys at FedEx Field as part of the United State Marine Corps' 2007 Toys for Tots Campaign. 1-800-PACK-RAT, a service leader in portable storage and moving solutions for residential and business customers, is working with Toys for Tots and the United States Marine Corps Reserves to assist in the collection, storage, and moving of toy donations during the Washington Redskins - Chicago Bears game on Thursday, December 6, 2007.

United States Marine Corps Reserves will place collected toys into specially gift wrapped 1-800-PACK-RAT storage units as part of the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation event. 1-800-PACK-RAT will then transport the donations for distribution to thousands of needy children in the Washington, DC area for the holidays.
