Charitable causes and the act of giving are major themes throughout the holiday season, and Century 21 Select in El Dorado Hills local business brought a lot of smiles to the young boys and girls in the area with a big donation to Toys for Tots.
Founded in 1947 by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, Toys for Tots has been one of the most popular charities in the country during the holiday season by delivering new, unwrapped toys to children and families who may not be getting the Christmas they deserve. As of 2013, nearly 500 million toys have been collected and distributed throughout the nation.
“Our agents have a passion to do this and since the toys are dispersed within El Dorado County there is a personal connection,” said Mike Southwick, regional manager for Century 21 Select in El Dorado County. “It truly is a wonderful cause and we couldn’t be happier to be involved. The holiday season is about giving the others, and that’s the biggest joy we get.”
The toys were collected by the local fire department to be distributed.
Employees at Century 21 Select in El Dorado Hills office truly believes in the spirit of giving and great causes. For more information contact Mike Southwick at 530-363-8662 or e-mail [email protected]
