Staff members at the PVA national headquarters in Washington, D.C., collected roughly 50 toys and more than $550 for the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots program run out of Bolling Air Force Base in Washington D.C.

PVA has been participating in the annual Toys for Tots drive for more than 10 years through its toy and spare change drive, which encourages employees to donate toys, money or even just the spare change in their pockets.

“Employees like to see all of the toys and the difference it makes, as it’s been a hard year for a lot of families,” says Sheila Skipper, associate director of public relations and outreach at PVA. “It’s all about making a child’s holiday special and inspiring everyone to give what they can.”
