TALLAHASSEE – Chief Financial Officer Tom Gallagher applauded employees of the Department of Financial Services, which he oversees, for expressing the holiday spirit. DFS employees gave more than 1000 toys to the Big Bend area Toys for Tots, a program designed to provide toys to needy children and families. The toys were collected and delivered by U.S. Marines of Company C, 8th Tank Battalion.

"Thank you to employees who gave more than 1000 toys to the ‘Toys for Tots' program, and for demonstrating your concern for your community and those less fortunate." Gallagher said. "Also, a special thanks to Captain Kerry Rhodes and the men and women of Company C for collecting the toys."

In addition to the Toys for Tots effort, DFS employees also gave generously to the Florida State Employee's Charitable Campaign this year, contributing more than $200,000 in cash donations or payroll deductions. These contributions rank DFS #1 in giving this year.
