A lot of kids will be happy this year because Toys For Tots received their biggest employee driven corprate donation ever today.

Employees from Amatek Dixon raised three thousand dollars through pig roasts, raffles and other events. That total was then matched by the Amatex Foundation creating a total of six thousand dollars in donations.

The toys for tots foundation says it's these types of donations that give less fortunate children a chance at a dignified Christmas.

Greg Merschel from Toys For Tots said, "self esteem in a child that lasts for the rest of their life starts with what our community instills in them today."

The money raised will provide more than six hundred primary presents for kids in the Grand Valley.
