TicketNetwork staff bring holiday cheer with Toys for Tots donations

Hundreds of area families in need to receive toys during holidays through program

SOUTH WINDSOR, Connecticut – December 15, 2022 - TicketNetwork employees played the role of Santa Claus this month, helping make the holiday season a bit brighter for hundreds of families in need. The Ticket resale marketplace and software company collected toys to be donated to the Connecticut Toys for Tots program throughout the month of December, delivering them to the organization on Thursday afternoon in Plainville.

Staff members brought in new and unwrapped toys in a drive that ran from the start of December through the company holiday party on Wednesday afternoon. The company donated $5,000 worth of toys to the effort, with more than $1,000 in toys added by the generous members of the company staff who participated in the effort to brighten the day of many families in need.

“Contributing to organizations like this that impact our community is a major priority for us,” says TicketNetwork Chief Financial Officer Christopher Hummer, who was joined by fellow staff members in delivering the toys to the location in Plainville. “Our employees have always stepped up when it comes to Toys for Tots donations and this year is no different. It’s tremendous for us to be able to play a small part in making this holiday season a little brighter for local children and families in need.”

The Marine Toys for Tots program is celebrating 75 years of operation, founded in 1947 by Marine reservist Major Bill Hendricks. The nation-wide program is driven by Marines, sailors, and their families who volunteer to collect, sort, and deliver gifts to families in need across the United States.

The local Toys for Tots campaign in Plainville saw more than 41,000 toys distributed to 36,565 children during the 2021 holiday season, according to its website.
