With the holiday season over, financial staffing firm Robert Half International took stock of the 14,000 toys and games, food items and household necessities collected and then distributed through its annual holiday drive.

The items were donated to local Boys & Girls Clubs and agencies and bring the total of toys and goods raised through the program since 2006 to 70,000.

"What started as a small, community-based event in Chicago has grown into a program that reaches thousands of children and families throughout the United States," said Max Messmer, chairman and CEO of Robert Half International, in a statement. "We are honored to assist our community partners with the good work they do during the holidays and throughout the year."
