Our Minneapolis colleagues dedicated their annual charity drive to Toys for Tots, a national nonprofit that distributes toys to low-income families. Team members brought new, unwrapped toys between Thanksgiving and the week of Christmas. Then, the week before Christmas, the toys were delivered to KARE 11, a local news station and convenient drop-off location near our Minneapolis office. Toys were distributed daily to children and their families during the evening newscast.
The Toys for Tots charity drive was a huge success, with the final Perficient count being 65 toys, $100, and one big ole’ teddy bear. We’re over-the-moon excited to have made such an impact and we’re committed to doing more in the coming year. We are eager to continue our community partnership with Toys for Tots, fully knowing that our focused efforts can make a huge impact.
Our General Manager Art Quinn was delighted about the success of the campaign:
“It’s great to see everyone get involved to make children’s lives a little brighter.”
An Ongoing Commitment
We are grateful for our colleagues’ continuous engagement with our team-building office activities. Efforts such the toy drive help foster a sense of community we strive to establish as a company. Additionally, these efforts result in a greater sense of collaboration outside of our Skype interactions and conference room meetings.
As a company, we value community engagement and are committed to giving back. To read more about our community partners, click here.
