Taylorville Toy Drive


Watson’s plant in Taylorville IL did a great job on the toy drive this Christmas. The toys are donated to St. Mary’s church in Taylorville for their annual “Santa’s Workshop” event, where parents come to the church and select new, unwrapped toys for their children.

We started our toy drive with a twist: We offered a challenge. If employees collected 25 toys, Watson would donate $500 toward the purchase of additional toys. Employees then volunteered to shop for the additional toys and see who could get the best deals and the most toys.

The results were fantastic! Take a look at all the great toys. What a difference this can make in a community, and getting everyone involved builds a great feeling of camaraderie, and shows that so many people really do care.
