SIMM Associates is proud to announce their involvement in the 2016 Toys for Tots charity toy drive to raise money and collect toys for local underprivileged children. As a company, SIMM Associates will be making a donation and has encouraged their staff to make personal donations to the charity by bringing in toys.
“It has been great to see our company and its people coming together to help families provide holiday gifts for underprivileged children” said Chief Operating Officer Jeff Simendinger. “Shortly after announcing the toy drive, the wonderful people in our company started showing up with toys to donate and the pile has quickly grown. Our team has taken this toy drive to heart and we are very excited to be able to make such an impact in the lives of so many children in our local community” he continued.
“I think that the passion our people have shown for collecting gifts for these children is inspiring” said Director of Human Resources Wendy Griffith. “Our people have really been taking this charity event to heart and we could not be happier about the progress we have made. There are going to be a lot more happy children this holiday season”.
