Every child deserves a little Christmas

Each year, we try to do a community service project around Christmas time. This year, Tim Cook, Process Engineer; suggested we team up with the U. S. Marine Corps and their Toys for Tots program. With 2 weeks until the pickup deadline, we reached out to our employees and challenged them to fill a gaylord full of toys. And they did! A U. S. Marine Corps reservist picked the toys up this morning and will deliver them to the distribution site that services our county. We have an awesome group of employees with such giving hearts. Every Child Deserves a Little Christmas!!
