Giving Toys and Joy!
The CC Pace Accounting group (aka: AFA – Amazing Fun Always department) sponsored our corporate Toys for Tots toy drive this holiday season. The Marine Corps Toys for Tots program was started in 1947 by Marine Corps Reserve Major Bill Hendricks, who with the help of his unit collected 5,000 toys to be distributed that first year. Bill lucked out getting things started when as a favor, a friend named Walt Disney designed the very first Toys for Tots poster to be used.
Today the Toys for Tots program collects an average of 18 million toys each year. CC Pace’s Toys for Tots toy drive was a tremendous success as our team and friends in the community filled up 2 large boxes here at headquarters alone, as well as cash donations and contributions from CC Pace employees supporting the program nationwide. We are proud to think about all the children whose holidays will be brighter and happier because of our support. A shout-out of thanks to everyone who helped us promote this campaign and all who participated!
