GDG Secret Santas Collect Toys for Local Charity

What toys were on your list for Santa? Did you dream of unwrapping an Etch A Sketch® on Christmas morning? Were your thoughts lit up by the excitement of a Lite-Brite®? Or did a love of storytelling provide an endless amount of book ideas for Jolly Old Saint Nick?  

Every year, our agencies participate in a holiday giving program to benefit those in need in our local communities. This year, we were inspired by our own childhood wishes as we collected toys to donate to Toy Mountain. Everyone was tasked to pick an age range (4-7, 8-11, 12-15) and identify the toy they themselves wanted at that age before setting out to purchase a gift.

We celebrated with a grand “unwrapping” event across agencies before donating all the toys.  Take a look at some of the gifts our GDG Secret Santas picked up in the gallery below!
