Pelco Makes Record-Setting Donation to Toys for Tots

CLOVIS, Calif.

Not content to set the pace as the largest donator to the U.S. Marine Corps.’ “Toys for Tots” campaign, the employees of CCTV product-maker Pelco bested themselves with a record-setting toy donation drive in November and December. Pelco and its employees are donating 150,440 toys, besting their record of 149,408 toys donated in 2000.

The program has come far from when a small group of Pelco employees got together in 1993 and donated 808 toys to Marines’ program, which donates toys during the holiday season to homeless and in-need children. Toys for Tots officials say Pelco’s donation drive is the largest in the nation.

“This is our way of reaching out and making a small, positive difference to tens of thousands of needy children – all at once,” said Pelco CEO David McDonald as Pelco announced the end of its 2005 donation drive. “Without our employees’ generosity, these children might have no Christmas at all.  There can be no more worthy cause than this.”
