Irvine, California - 'Tis the season to be jolly ... and giving. On December 19th, 2017, Virtual Graffiti completed the "Spark of Love" Toy Drive in Orange County as a part of its "Reaching Out to the Community" program, which it launched this year to help those in need. As the ornaments went up in Virtual Graffiti's Irvine office the toys started piling up. Through the help of its employees, Virtual Graffiti has driven their social responsibility movement by donating a wagon of toys to Orange County Fire Station 51.
"We found that by being part of a cause together and reaching out to our community, not only did the workplace culture increase but there was also a boost in employee morale. "
