Robert Half, one of the world's largest specialized staffing firms, will be holding its 8th annual Holiday Toy Drive and Christmas Party from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Joe & Ann Garcia Salesian Boys & Girls Club, 302 W. Gladys St. in Tampa.
"Over the last eight years, we have grown and sustained a wonderful partnership with all of the Robert Half branch locations in Florida and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay," Ryan Skubis, district director for Robert Half in Florida, said. "We've worked with our clients to carefully hand pick toys that match the needs of all of our party guests."
The majority of the 500 guests of honor at the event live in low-income communities in Hillsborough and Pasco counties and regularly attend Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay afterschool and outreach programs. For many children attending the party, these gifts are the only presents they will receive this holiday season.
Since 2009, the annual Holiday Toy Drive and Christmas Party has served more than 1,900 children of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay.
"Collaborative partnerships are essential to ensure the sustainability and longevity of organizations like ours," Chris Letsos, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, said. "Robert Half has not only engaged their team on a local level but are effectively leaving their philanthropic thumbprint on cities across the country, making the communities in which they live and work brighter, better and safer places for everyone."
