Local Boat Builder Brightening the Holidays for over 100 Needy
Children Through Toys For Tots and Angel Tree Program.
Loudon, Tennessee – In what has become an important holiday tradition, Malibu Boats, Inc. (MBUU) is matching funds raised by its employees to support the Loudon County chapters of Toys For Tots and the Salvation Army’s Angel Program.
This year, Malibu employees raised over $9,000, which the company matched. Driven by the spirit of the holiday season, some departments hosted bake sales while others held raffles to support the two charities. The result was the most successful holiday toy drive in company history.
Armed with over $18,000 to spend and wish lists from 104 area children, Malibu employees descended upon local stores. Not only did employees do the shopping, but they also donated their time to wrap every present.
"Malibu employees have huge hearts and they work hard every year to brighten the lives of children in need," said Debbie Kent, Vice President of Human Resources at Malibu Boats. "We are incredibly proud of our employees for embracing the opportunity to support Toys For Tots and the Angel Program, and we’re honored to match the funds they raised in order to make this holiday season a bit brighter for some very special local children."
