Saturday morning, Team 604 participated in the annual Toys for Tots event at the Santa Clara Fairgrounds, helping to distribute Christmas gifts to underprivileged children, in addition to demoing robots. We partnered up with several other local FIRST teams including Team 254, The Cheezy Poofs, Team 1868, The Space Cookies, and Team 115, Monta Vista Robotics, to help give the children a chance to drive our robots, and we loved watching their excitement as they learned to maneuver the robots themselves!
Meanwhile, other team members worked diligently as “Toy Runners”, sorting and selecting gifts to each child to make their Christmas just a little bit sweeter; we even overheard a little one saying, “This is the best Christmas ever!”.
Whether you’re traveling out of town, or just catching up on some much needed rest, Team 604 hopes to encourage everyone to give back to their community in some way this holiday season, and we wish everyone a wonderful holiday!
Can’t wait for Kickoff in 11 days!
