Malibu Boats Inc. is matching funds raised by its employees to support the Loudon County, Tennessee, chapters of Toys For Tots and the Salvation Army’s Angel Program.
This year Malibu employees raised more than $9,000, which the company matched. Some departments hosted bake sales and others held raffles. The result was the most successful holiday toy drive in company history.
Armed with more than $18,000 to spend and wish lists from 104 area children, Malibu employees descended on local stores. Not only did employees do the shopping, but they also donated their time to wrap every present.
“Malibu employees have huge hearts and they work hard every year to brighten the lives of children in need,” Malibu vice president of human resources Debbie Kent said in a statement.
“We are incredibly proud of our employees for embracing the opportunity to support Toys For Tots and the Angel Program, and we’re honored to match the funds they raised in order to make this holiday season a bit brighter for some very special local children.”
