Twinkling lights, jingling bells and perfectly wrapped packages under a magnificent tree are some of the images we see when we think about the magical season of Christmas. For some of our friends, those images are not the first things that come to their minds. This year, our employee-owners wanted to share that Christmas magic with others that may not be so fortunate. We teamed up with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program to provide cheer to children in our community. Huntsville employees collected more than 300 toys for little boys and girls.
"We have collected toys before but this year, we collected 317 toys - our most toys to date. The opportunity to give back is truly special. Toys for Tots is just one friendly way that we can bring cheer to the children in our community," said Shera Stansberry, Dynetics employee and honorary head elf.
We placed boxes in each of our buildings around Huntsville. Once the toys were collected, our Christmas elves packed the truck and headed off to deliver the toys to Santa's Workshop. We hope that our gift will add a twinkle to a child's eye on Christmas morning.
