The mission of the of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in our local community. Toys for Tots helps millions of children each year experience the excitement of receiving gifts for Christmas. Each year, we are honored to help support their mission by having two or more boxes around the office for employees to donate toys leading up to Christmas.
Each year for Christmas, Knowledge Services participates in the Adopt-a-Family program put on by a local church. The Adopt-a-Family program provides gifts to families that might otherwise go without. Each family is contacted to find out sizes and needs of each family member. Items on their list are individually written on gift tags and hung from a Christmas tree in our office. Employees rally together to purchase and wrap gifts and deliver them several weeks before Christmas. We’re always excited to drop of our gifts to these wonderful families!
The Light the Night Walk is a fundraising campaign of The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as remember those lost to the diseases and bring awareness to the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients. For the past two years, Knowledge Services has been honored to participate in the Light the Night Walk in October.
In the months leading up to the Walk, we plan different activities to raise funds for this amazing organization. Fundraising events include, Summer Olympics, a luncheon with silent auction, weekly fun activities, Penny Wars, and many more. Below are pictures highlighting some of the fun we’ve had as a team supporting LLS.
