powertek logoRockville, Md.-based Powertek Corp. raised more than $1,500 last Christmas through its 2012 Share It Forward campaign for the benefit of the U.S. Marine CorpsToys For Tots Foundation.

The program ran for a month through social media and other online outlets, with the company pledging $1 every time users of the websites shared its Toys For Tots photo graphic, Powertek said.

The funds were used to buy dozens of toys that were presented to the foundation for gift-wrapping and distribution to less fortunate children.

“During these tough economic times, it’s truly important to make sure that every child is able to experience the joy and wonder of the holiday season, so we are proud to support the United States Marine Corps and the Toys for Tots Foundation,” said P. J. Bulger, senior vice president at Powertek.

“(We) are happy that our ‘Share It Forward’ campaign resulted in such a large donation.”

The Marine Corps said it began the Toys For Tots campaign to spread hope and promote patriotism, productivity and responsibility.
