Media Advisory/Alert: Synopsys and Marines from the 6th Engineer Support Battalion to Hold a Toys for Tots Holiday Drop-Off Event



HILLSBORO, Ore., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Synopsys, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNPS), a world leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, will hold a holiday toy drop-off event for the Toys for Tots Foundation at the Synopsys Hillsboro campus, which is centrally located at Cornelius Pass Road and Walbridge. Marines from the 6th Engineer Support Battalion and Young Marines from the local area, both in their blues, will join Synopsys employee volunteers to collect donations and load them into a U.S. Marines 7-ton vehicle, which will be parked onsite. The goal is to collect 1,000 new, unwrapped toys to fill the entire vehicle.


2009 has been one of the roughest economic years for the Portland area, and many families with children are now struggling. More than 35,000 local children are in need of toys this holiday season. Toys for Tots is partnering with local companies, including Synopsys and Burgerville, to help meet this increased need. The goal of the toy drop-off event is to boost the low inventory of toy donations Toys for Tots has received so far this year so that no child is left without a new toy.


As a token of thanks and a way to return the holiday cheer, Burgerville will be onsite at the event to give out coupons good for a free regular-sized milkshake (with the purchase of equal or greater value) to those who drop off new, unwrapped toys. Complimentary hot chocolate and cookies will also be available for the entire family. Kids are welcome!


Synopsys is also serving as a community drop-off location for Toys for Tots donations during business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm) through Friday, December 18th. The donation box for new, unwrapped toys is located in the lobby of the Synopsys building.
