eLocal Listing gives generously to Toys for Tots

elocallisting Toys for Tots

When a member of the eLocal Listing team approached Tim Judd, CEO about participating in the Toys for Tots Foundation not only did he say yes, but he agreed that eLocal Listing would match the employees donations one for one.  As a result, Ronda Schopper, Reporting Analyst, began to encourage her fellow employees to donate  -and donate they did.  The team at eLocal Listing’s headquarters donated over 25 gifts, each generously matched by Senior Management at eLocal Listing.

The Toys for Tots program began in 1947 when Major Bill Hendricks and a group of Marine Reservists in LA collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children in the LA area. Since that time the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program has distributed both new and used toys to needy children across the United States.

Ronda’s interest in the program stems from her relationship with her boyfriend, Peter Valdez, who served in Afghanistan with the unit Scarface HMLA 367.  Ronda doggedly approached each employee and over 90% participated.  eLocal Listing would like to thank Ronda and the entire team for helping brighten the lives of children in the Riverside County area.
