Kicking off the holiday giving this year, our Xtreme Portland office participated in the annual KGW Great Toy Drive for the 4th consecutive year! This incredible opportunity to give back is something that we look forward to participating in each year. The KGW Great Toy Drive benefits more than 120 non-profit organizations throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington.
This year marks the 35 anniversary of the KGW Great Toy Drive. mBetween the hundreds of drop-off locations, local community partners were able to gather tens of thousands of gifts for local families and dedicated volunteers in need during this holiday season. At Xtreme, we always enjoy giving back through food and clothing drives, but you can’t beat the feeling of providing a toy to a child who otherwise wouldn’t receive one.
According to a recent study conducted by the American Research Group, Inc., families are spending an average of $983 on Christmas gifts this year. For the families that are struggling financially, the holiday season can become daunting when it comes to gift giving. The KGW Great Toy Drive is an outstanding example of how we can help support and bring joy to local families in need on Christmas morning.
