This week the Job.com team took some time away from the office to help out in the community as well as to celebrate the season with one another. As second year volunteers for the Marine Toys For Tots Program, the team gathered at the Northern Virginia Toys for Tots Headquarters to sort toys, haul boxes and fill gift orders. Job.com is proud to work alongside the Marines and their close friends and family members in an effort to bring some joy to those less fortunate. After a memorable day of giving the team circled back in their Fredericksburg, VA office for their annual luncheon. The event consisted of a gift exchange, a Mediterranean buffet, and ended with a 2014 Pop Culture Trivia contest. There was plenty of food, fun and laughter at this joyous event.
