Fun, Games and Toys Mark Contractor's Latest Giving Effort
Virginia Beach, Va. – Dozens of employees at local defense contractor ADS turned their attention from tactical gear and equipment to toys and games last week, donating gifts to The Noblemen’s annual toy drive.
Children filled the lobby of ADS’ corporate offices on Lynnhaven Parkway as they opened gifts, wrote letters to troops overseas, made reindeer food and took pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus. The day finished with a special holiday Nugget Station dinner made just for kids.
The kids couldn’t have been happier and neither could our employees. Smiles and holiday cheer all around. Mission accomplished.”
-Jason Wallace, ADS’ CEO
The toy drive was just the latest effort by ADS’ new Mission Give Back Foundation, which the company formally established earlier this year to increase charitable giving and have a lasting, positive impact throughout the community.
“The Foundation allows us to more efficiently raise and distribute charitable financial support and organize volunteer efforts, which our employees have been embracing for years,” Wallace said. “Our goal is to give back and support the communities we serve as much as we can, and The Noblemen’s annual toy drive gave us the perfect opportunity.”
The mission of The Noblemen, a Virginia Beach non-profit organization, is to perform noble deeds throughout the year to help local kids in need. The organization’s annual toy drive reaches more than 3,000 children across the region every year.
