Oregon Travel Experience is a small agency. Approximately 37 employees are employed in both field operations and administrative support. Although considered tiny by state agency standards, OTE employee’s hearts are huge, as evidenced by their participation in the state employee’s holiday toy drive.
Three large boxes of toys were delivered by OTE staff to the Capitol rotunda, where all of the toys received from state workers will be on display until they are picked up by the Toy for Joy Program.
The annual toy drive allows state employees to donate new, unwrapped toys for children ages 1 to 12. The Salvation Army depends heavily on this drive for a large portion of the toys it distributes each December.
No agency funds are used for the drive. All toys were purchased on the employee’s time off, and with their own money.
