Temperatures may be below freezing, but that has not stopped Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) employees from heating things up with their holiday Toys for Tots drive. This year AP collected and donated a total of 122 toys and $5,000! On Tuesday, December 10, AP employees bundled up to drop-off the truckload of toys and present the large check on KARE 11’s 4:00 PM newscast.
AP continually seeks ways to give back and pay-it-forward through community service. With a mission of building trust, communities and people, AP focuses on projects that enhance communities where they live and work. AP’s core values reach beyond their approach to delivering quality work to their clients. Across the country, employees exemplify AP’s commitment to bringing positive measurable change to the communities in which they live and build. Employees at each regional office make a lasting impact by supporting local charitable and community organizations they are passionate about. Every year, hundreds of AP employees generously donate their talents, their energy and thousands of hours of their time to charitable organizations.
This holiday season, AP selected to give back to the community by collecting toys for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program – a program that collects and distributes new toys to help less fortunate children, throughout local communities, experience the joy of Christmas. As an officially recognized Toys for Tots drop-off location, AP’s office and job sites collected new, unwrapped toys and money from Monday, November 25 – Friday, December 6. Once all toys were received, several brave AP employees stood out in the freezing cold temperatures to haul the truckload of toys over to KARE 11’s Toys for Tots drop-off tent and present the $5,000 large check.
It may be cold outside, but AP and their employees’ generous donation will be sure to warm and brighten the spirits of many less fortunate children and families this holiday season!
