Employees from Carnival Cruise Lines’ Global Contact Center did their part to make the holidays a little brighter for South Florida families, donating thousands of toys and bicycles for the U.S. Marine Corps’ Toys For Tots program worth over $52,000.

The toys and bicycles are shown here at the company’s offices in Miramar, Fla., prior to being loaded onto trucks and distributed to unprivileged children throughout South Florida.

This is just one component of the Global Contact Center’s longstanding support of Toys for Tots.  Last month, the center held a special comedy fundraiser at the Fort Lauderdale Improv that raised more than $8,000 for the program.
