Season of Giving—USGS Employees Donate Toys for Holiday Distribution

Giving thanks for your blessings, being generous to others, and surrounding yourself with family, friends, and good food are just a few activities that make for a perfect holiday season. During November and December, we are asked to look inside ourselves and give to those who are less fortunate. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) employees in Tampa and St. Petersburg, FL, did just that when they decided to collect unwrapped toys for children. Lisa Robbins (Director of the USGS St. Petersburg Science Center [CCWS] in St. Petersburg) and Jack Kindinger (CCWS Deputy Director) presented the gifts to Florida Congressman Bill Young at his birthday party on December 12. Congressman Young had asked those attending his birthday celebration to bring a toy to donate for a child, instead of a gift for him. Lisa and Jack were extremely proud to present an entire box of gifts on behalf of the USGS, and would like to thank everyone who participated.
