Doherty Staffing held its tenth annual toy drive in collaboration with Toys for Tots to help ensure that less fortunate children in the Minneapolis area have gifts to enjoy this holiday season.
Doherty coordinated its 10th Annual Toy Drive for the Toys for Tots toy collection this year. Over the last decade, the employee-sponsored donations for this worthy cause have steadily grown, making it one of the company’s most anticipated charitable events each year.
Together, Doherty employees collectively pooled over 100 toys for the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program for this holiday season. Items included an assortment of plush animals, in addition to a wide variety of games, books and other fun toys. The donations were picked up from Doherty on December 20, 2016 and will be distributed to less fortunate children in the Minneapolis area, just in time for Christmas.
Several Doherty employees explained that the toy drive is one of their favorite events of the holiday season because sometimes giving feels even better than receiving.

About Toys for Tots
Toys for Tots, an over 65 year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community.
