First Annual Toys for Tots Campaign was a SUCCESS!
KE&G’s first annual Toys for Tots drive was a huge success! Rain or shine these volunteers were able to collect over 2,000 individual toys. Huge holiday thank you to Toys R Us for allowing us to set up our collection corner outside their store. Thank you to Dana Kepner for the support as well as the refreshments and snacks to help keep our volunteers fueled throughout the day, to Empire CAT for allowing us to utilize their Loader to fill, and to everyone who generously contributed and donated for a successful fill the loader bucket campaign! KE&G’s ESOP Communication Committee would like to thank all the U of A students, KE&G employees and their families who took the time out of their busy schedules to help make this event successful. Thank you to the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots for giving us the opportunity to help less fortunate children experience the joy of Christmas.
