Marines honor TVA Boone Dam project leaders, Lenny Peterson, for Toys for Tots giving

Members of the TVA Boone Dam project team and Lenny Peterson were honored by the U.S. Marine Corps for annual giving to the Toys for Tots program during a ceremony held August 10 at Boone Dam. The Marines said the Boone Dam team kept them from using foundation funds in 2020, and children in seven counties were provided new toys. The active duty soldiers are from India Company 3rd Battalion 25th Marines, Gray. They gave a special award to Lenny Peterson for his leadership. The Boone Dam project annually provides a school bus and two pick-up trucks full of new toys for the Toys for Tots program. In 2020 the project accounted for one half of the toys donated to the local program.
