Sawnee EMC employees and members of Sawnee’s Consumer Advisory Task Force recently donated toys to benefit children who receive services from Supporting Adoption and Foster Families Together.

Almost 200 new toys were delivered Dec. 15 to Forsyth County Fire Station No. 1.

“Our employees, and the members of our task force, have really embraced this toy drive,” said Blake House, vice president of member services at Sawnee EMC. “We have always done a lot for charity, but when you mention that we are doing something to help kids at Christmas — it brings on a whole different spirit of giving. You can see the pride in their eyes when they bring in a sack full of toys knowing that a needy child is going to now get to open something on Christmas morning.”
