WEST SPRINGFIELD – Balise Motors announced that they have collected over 1,000 toys for the 2014 Toys for Tots campaign.

For the first time, toys were collected through both social media and collection boxes at Balise dealerships throughout the region.

The social media campaign ran from Dec. 1 to 12 during which for every “like” they received on Facebook (, Balise purchased a toy for Toys for Tots.

Mike Balise, vice president of Balise Motor Sales, said, “the support for Toys for Tots from the Western Massachusetts community has been overwhelming, and all of us at Balise would like to thank everyone who took the time to drop off a toy or to ‘like’ us on Facebook.

“We were so glad to be able to do our part to ensure that every child wakes up to a gift on Christmas morning,” he added.
