Local tech company employees donate to the FOX 12 Toy Drive

For the third holiday season, a local tech giant helped families and kids in need in a big way.

Program manager at Intel, Lisa Malecky, said the company rented out the Oregon Zoo Tuesday for its employees and their families for their annual holiday party.

“That’s the hallmark of the event,” Malecky said. “This is an opportunity to give back to our community as well.”

Theo Spelman and his mom, Lisa attended the company party last year. Theo said this year, he brought his favorite Star Wars toy for another child in need.

“I hope they have fun with [this],” Spelman said.

Intel employees donated hundreds of presents to the FOX 12 Les Schwab Centers Toy Drive.

Malecky said more than 9,000 employees were expected to attend the party.

The FOX 12 Les Schwab Centers Toy Drive runs through December 13. People can drop off new, unwrapped toys at the FOX 12 studios in Beaverton or Les Schwab locations.
