Gary Works and the Midwest Plant Raise Over $11,000 for Toys for Tots!

On November 30, U. S. Steel Gary Works and the Midwest Plant hosted a gate collection for Toys for Tots. In addition to collecting hundreds of toys for children in Northwest Indiana, employees donated $11,492 for the Marine Corps Reserve’s annual Toys for Tots! 

On Tuesday, employees presented a check to Toys for Tots. This money will be used to purchase any additional toys needed to make Christmas special for the children and families.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to support Toys for Tots this year!
