MAX collects hundreds of toys to benefit River Region and Lee County families

MONTGOMERY, AL (December 17, 2015) — MAX, in conjunction with the MAX4Kids Foundation®, hosted the MAX4Kids Toy Drive benefitting two, local non-profits: Common Ground Montgomery’s 9th Annual Christmas Store and Big House Foundation’s Santa’s Workshop. Common Ground Montgomery’s Christmas store provides kids in the community the joy of receiving toys for Christmas, offers parents and guardians of these kids the gift of dignity as they are provided an opportunity to purchase toys at an affordable rate, and helps empower the high school students in the After School Program by giving them an opportunity to invest back into their community.  Big House Foundation’s Santa’s Workshop helps make Christmas memorable for children in foster care in and around Lee County by allowing kids in foster care the opportunity to shop for the members of their family and  giving parents the opportunity to select gifts for children in their home.

MAX team members, customers, and the community worked together to donate hundreds of toys for the toy drive. The MAX4Kids Foundation also donated more than $2,500 to allow MAX team members to shop for toys for both organizations.

 “In a season where it is very easy to lose sight of what’s most important, we are so thankful for the generosity of MAX team members, customers, and the community,” said Sandra Stenger, MAX Chief Talent Officer and MAX4Kids Vice President. “We were thrilled to see our team members donate toys to the toy drive as well as give up time to shop for the kids.”
