Draper, a Kendall Square engineering innovation company, teamed up with the Cambridge Fire Department for an annual Toys for Tots drive, continuing a 15-year tradition. The effort raised $17,444 for the national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve – $5,000 from the company, for a combined amount large enough to buy 16 bins of toys, the company said in a Dec. 14 email. “In the midst of a year like no other, our employees joined together to help Cambridge and the surrounding area with the most donations we have ever had for Toys for Tots,” said Scott Lennox, an organizer for Draper’s toy drive. Cambridge’s acting fire chief, Gerry Mahoney, said the city was “fortunate to have such a dedicated and committed community partner in Draper.”
