           Toys for Tots

        SRS employees donate thousands of toys to area kids

        SRS employees have once again played Santa for children in the Central Savannah River Area this year, contributing more than 20,000 toys and
        600 bicycles to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve’s Toys for Tots and the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program.
        Since 1991, SRS employees have donated more than 400,000 toys during the annual Toys for Tots and Angel Tree campaigns.
        Partnering with these programs to benefit less fortunate children in the area has been an important tradition supported by the largest contractor
        companies at SRS. SRNS, who manages the annual event, was one of three contractors to provide corporate checks to further add to the
        success of this year’s toy drive.
        Once the toys are sorted, Aiken Marines distribute the gifts to children in Aiken, Allendale, Barnwell and Edgefield counties, as well as the cities
        and towns of North Augusta, Beech Island, Belvedere, Williston, Salley and Couchton. The Marines from Augusta provide toys to Burke, Columbia,
        Glascock, Hancock, Jefferson, Jenkins, Lincoln, McDuffie, Richmond, Taliaferro, Warren, Washington and Wilkes counties and the town of Wrens.
