Doherty Enterprises’ Applebee’s locations to raise funds for Toys for Tots this holiday season

NEW JERSEY – It’s officially the season of giving! Applebee’s locations owned and operated by Doherty Enterprises Inc. are raising funds in support of the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program, which distributes new toys to as many underprivileged children as possible to provide a tangible sign of hope during this holiday season.

This year, Applebee’s is providing guests with multiple ways to make a child’s holiday wish come true.

In addition, customers can purchase a gift pack for $1, $5 or more. One hundred percent of the contributions collected will be donated directly to the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program to be distributed to local families.

In the spirit of holiday giving, Applebee’s also wants to thank its loyal patrons.  Guests who purchase $50 in Applebee’s gift cards will also receive a $10 bonus gift card*, which can be used through January 31, 2022. From November 26- November 29,  guests who purchase $50 in gift cards will receive two $10 bonus gift cards.
