The Salvation Army wishes to express a sincere Thank You to the Donnelly Group for 14 years of support, seeing an overwhelming total of $275,000 in donations through the Donnelly Group’s Annual Toy Drive.
“The Toy Drive is a highly anticipated event amongst our staff – everyone goes above and beyond to help a child in need have a memorable holiday,” said Jeff Donnelly, President of the Donnelly Group.
The annual Toy Drive is the flagship event of the company’s charitable arm, The Donnelly Fund. Pattie Donnelly, who oversees the fund, added, “We’re thrilled to be able to help this amazing organization that does so much for our city.”
Every December, the Donnelly Group provides a $50 gift certificate to Toys ‘R’ Us to each of its 600+ employees to purchase toys for children in need. Employees are encouraged to go beyond the $50, as the company will match all additional employee donations.
“The Donnelly Group’s Toy Drive is one of the biggest in the city and we’re immensely grateful for their generosity,” said Major Russ Holland of the Salvation Army. “The 14-year tradition has helped so many families; we’re excited to know that they’ll be continuing the tradition again this holiday season.”
We are filled with joy to see the happiness on the faces of many families and children who receive toys from this toy drive and this is all possible because of the Donnelly Group!
