For the past couple of weeks, a storage room at CBT Nuggets headquarters has been slowly filling with toys: Legos, dolls, games, stuffed animals, a ukelele, and more.
Though many a CBT team member yearned to play with the toys, they weren’t for us. They were for Toys for Tots, an organization that distributes new toys to children who otherwise wouldn’t have much to unwrap at Christmas. This national program is operated by the U.S. Marine Corps and has resulted in more than 209 million children getting toys.

Yesterday afternoon, we loaded a sleigh–er, car–with the toys and delivered them to a Toys for Tots drop-off point, a local fire station.
This wasn’t an official NuggetLOVE activity, but it sure was a fun way to spread some holiday cheer! And as many of us are kids at heart, it was fun to know we could bring a smile to real kids in our own community.
