Synopsys, Inc. (Nasdaq:SNPS), a world leader in software and IP used in the design, verification and manufacture of electronic components and systems, and Intel Corporation  (NASDAQ: INTC) 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 and Intel 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. Kids are welcome!

For people in the Portland area, 2011 has been another rough economic year 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 Intel, to help meet this 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.

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 Thursday, December 15th. The donation box for new, unwrapped toys is located in the lobby of the Synopsys building.
