The Invictus Group recently collected toy donations to benefit Toys for Tots, an organization that collects new, unwrapped toys and distributes them to less fortunate children in the community.

The privately owned marketing firm headquartered in Cherry Hill, New Jersey worked together to bring in toys throughout December for all ages.

“The Invictus Group always takes part in different philanthropies like Toys for Tots,” said Lauren Cataldi, Human Resources Director. “It is great to feel like we can make a difference especially during the holiday season.”

Philanthropy has always been a priority for The Invictus Group; therefore, the company continues to show its support for multiple charities. Taking part in meaningful events like these help keep the company culture alive.
