Duff and Cunningham are genuine in their charitable efforts, and it shows. When asked about why they are continuing the drive, they commented “Our focus is to support others who may be in need and positively impact the holidays for children who are struggling financially. Last year with all the COVID challenges the donations to the Boys & Girls Club were down 80%. Last year we realized how important the Toy Drive became to giving back and supporting Local Businesses around us. We plan to continue the Toy Drive and hope to exceed our donations year after year. We have even bigger plans for next year that will enable us to expand this amazing cause as well as expand our team to make this an everlasting event.
