2,000 Toys for Tots!

Kim Vallero, chief Toys for Tots coordinator, just emailed all of us that we raised over 2,000 toys in our Annual Toys for Tots Drive.  Our Lakeview location in Edwardsville, Illinois was the winner in our annual competition and took top honors in raising over 1,000 toys!

Toys for Tots is one of my favorite activities this time of year.  It’s a great reflection WWT’s company culture and highlights our teamwork, competitive drive, and generosity to those in need.

Ultimately, though, it’s about the “tots” and the Drive is our small part in helping children in our community experience the joy and happiness of Christmas and the season.

A tip of the hat and a sincere “thank you” to all the employees at World Wide!  And thanks to the United States Marine Corps who have been at this for over 50 years and helping millions of kids. (… as if they don’t already have enough to do defending our Country!)
