On December 7th the UTC Aerospace plant made a generous donation to Toys for Tots.
Employees at the Monroe County plant created an interdepartmental challenge. They each brought in money and donations to see which department could collect the most.Together, the business raised over $7,000. With that money, they have already purchased hundreds of toys.
“I think it’s unbelievable. We get to help out the kids, especially the flood victims, and the people around the community who don’t have much,” said employee Kevin Thomason.
Another employee, Willie Hylton, adds, “I’ve been here 11 years and this is the best thing I’ve seen as far as raising money for the community since I’ve been here.”
The toys are set to be picked up on Monday. They will stay in the Greenbrier and Monroe areas.
