“As you might expect, Santa is all about achieving greatness and he did just that at the 40th Annual Champion Enterprises/Achieving Greatness Inc. Toys for Tots Christmas party and toy giveaway,” said Bill Neal, president and CEO of Champion Enterprise/Achieving Greatness.
All of Santa’s helpers came out to the Penn Avenue McDonald’s to welcome more than 500 happy boys and girls and give away over 1,000 toys, he said.
Special thanks goes out to Champions and Achieving Greatness volunteers, New Pittsburgh Courier Lifestyles Editor Debbie Norrell and her other employer U.S. Bank, the U.S. Marines, Dennis Briggs and of course the Penn Avenue McDonald’s owner and operator Iftikhar Malik.
“There’s nothing better than boys and girls having fun at Christmas, toys and Big Mac’s! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everybody,” Neal concluded.
