Hyundai Dymos makes donation

With Christmas now just three days away, most holiday shopping is done, save the last-minute crowd frantically running to complete shopping lists prior to Monday. The anticipation for Dec. 25 steadily increases, growing in an inverse relationship to the days between now and then on the calendar. The less time there is until the big day, the more anxious we all are for its inevitable arrival.

As Christmas draws near, we all anticipate the morning of and the gift-giving that coincides.

In this time directly prior to Dec. 25, it is more important than ever before to be thankful for what has been given, and to be generous to our neighbors, as has been recently demonstrated by Hyundai Dymos in West Point.

The West Point plant’s 315 employees had been making donations that included children’s bikes, drones, dolls and the like for several weeks, Senior Team Relations Specialist Charlotte Robinson said.

These donations came as a result of the company’s participation in the Toys for Tots program, which is run by the US Marine Corps Reserve, and generously gives presents to children who would otherwise be unable to receive any.

The last two years, Hyundai Dymos has given its donations to the Troup County Toys for Tots organization.

This year, however, the company was courteously asked to send their donations to another needy community, as the influx of support and generosity to the organization in LaGrange and Troup County had already been overwhelming to the point where no more donations were needed.

The company sent their donations to Muscogee County, which happily accepted the plethora of gifts.

While Hyundai Dymos’ effort in this regard, to help families and children have a full Christmas experience is wonderful. The simple fact that the Troup County arm of the Toys for Tots organization received more gifts than they needed is a testament to the generosity, graciousness and selflessness than embodies so many of the LaGrange and Troup County citizens.

Thank you to all the companies that participated in this endeavor this year.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all.
