The Greene Turtle in Mount Airy hosted its 13th annual "Tips for Tots" fundraiser on Dec. 12. This fundraiser is Greene Turtle's biggest charity outreach of the year, where employees donate their tips collected throughout the day. These funds support the nationwide innovative, Toys for Tots. Overall, 44 Greene Turtle locations participate and support toy drives in Maryland, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

Combined with all participating locations, The Greene Turtle has been able to raise more than $421,000.
