As much as we love holiday gatherings and treats around the office, the spirit of giving is what we love most about this time of year at Chitika. That’s why we’re proud to reveal our donation of toys (for the second year in a row) to the local non-profit organization Timothy’s Toy Box in conjunction with their 2013 holiday toy drive.
Chitika employees teamed up to raise over $500 to put towards purchasing children’s toys this week, which was matched by the company to total over $1,000 for the collective toy purchase. In a special shopping trip to Target, two of our team members bought plenty of toys for Timothy’s Toy Box –- toys that will be redistributed to local children who otherwise would go without this holiday season.
Families who will receive the toys are local to the Chitika Headquarters, just outside of Boston. Timothy’s Toy Box collects new toys and delivers them to local schools, churches, homeless shelters and more. Since its 2007 inception by Sharon Gilbert and her son Timothy, the organization has collected and distributed thousands of new toys to children in need.
