Three Smashburger locations in Tampa, Clearwater and Sarasota are collection points in the US Marines Toys For Tots Program, with those who donate getting a free order of Smashburger’s popular Potato Tots in return.

From now through December 16th, according to Craig Tengler, principal of Regrub, the Smashburger Franchisee for the west and central parts of Florida, “We plan on supporting community outreach efforts such as this, as we expand the Smashburger brand along Florida’s west coast.”
Tengler said, ”just drop an unwrapped new toy in a collection box at any of our easy to reach stores, and we’ll give you an order of our Smash Tots for free. Tots for Tots.”
This year there’s a need for toys for infants (age 0-2), boys from 9-12 and girls from 7-12.”
