CUMMING, GA - December 18, 2014
Throughout the last several weeks, Sawnee EMC employees and members of Sawnee’s Consumer Advisory Task Force (CATF) have been donating toys in conjunction with the Cooperative’s first annual toy drive to benefit children that receive services from SAFFT (Supporting Adoption and Foster Families Together).
Almost 200 brand new toys were delivered on December 15, 2014 to Forsyth County Fire Station #1, which has been a toy collection site for many years.
“Our employees, and the members of our Task Force, have really embraced this toy drive. We have always done a lot for charity, but when you mention that we are doing something to help kids at Christmas… it brings on a whole different spirit of giving. You can see the pride in their eyes when they bring in a sack full of toys knowing that a needy child is going to now get to open something on Christmas morning.” stated Blake House, Vice President of Members Services at Sawnee EMC.
