Just in time for #GivingTuesday, Booz Allen Hamilton has launched its annual employee-led toy drive to benefit the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.  Since 1991 Booz Allen employees have supported Toys for Tots in its mission to distribute toys to children who may not otherwise receive a gift.

Booz Allen President and CEO Horacio Rozanski kicked of this year's campaign, one of the largest employee-led charitable initiatives at the firm, by asking employees to donate new, unwrapped toys or make a financial contribution to brighten the holidays for children. The firm will match all employee contributions up to a total of $25,000, and Marines across the country will deliver toys and use the funds raised to purchase additional toys at discounted prices.

Giving with a STEM Twist
This year, Booz Allen is putting a STEM twist on its Toys for Tots effort. Employees are encouraged to stop by the firm’s new Innovation Center in Washington, DC and drop off a STEM toy to support Toys for Tots. By encouraging playful innovation, STEM toys teach kids to love science, technology, engineering and math and help prepare them for bright futures in these fields. As a top employer of STEM professionals, Booz Allen believes in the importance of STEM education. Read more about Booz Allen’s commitment to STEM.
