ATC employees get creative with toy donations for kids

American Transmission Co. employees are embracing a new spin on the traditional Secret Santa gift-giving game as a way to help brighten the holidays for Wisconsin children.

Instead of buying gifts for each other, employees in the legal and environmental departments bought toys inspired by their coworkers for children in need.

Here’s how it worked: each employee drew the name of a colleague. Then, the givers bought toys that reminded them of their randomly selected coworkers.

After the “exchange,” all toys were donated to Toys for Tots.

“It was a great way to learn more about each other, while helping the children in our community who might otherwise be forgotten this holiday season,” said Danna Treutelaar, legal executive assistant.

Check out some of the photos from the gift “exchange” below:


We’re proud to help serve our communities – it’s part of ATC’s culture and commitment to do our part.
