When you’re a parent of a child in a Boys & Girls Club that is sponsored by a Toyota Financial Services Dealer Sales & Service Office (DSSO), you never know what to expect. At the Franklin Boys & Girls Club of Tennessee, parents picking up their children were surprised to see Santa deep in conversation with their kids.
The Nashville DSSO partnered with the Franklin Boys & Girls Club for a holiday party on December 8, 2015. There were approximately 70 kids and 8 Toyota team members when Santa came to visit the kids that evening.
During the party, the kids ate pizza, cookies, and fruit with a drink; for many of these kids this pizza was their last meal of the day. Many of the Club members rely on their schools for breakfast and lunch so an extra meal at dinnertime is often needed.
In addition to the holiday party, the DSSO donated a check for $2,000 to the Boys & Girls Club to fund scholarships for Club members whose parents are unable to afford summer care for their children.
