Howell Creative Group is sending out stuffed animals to brighten the holidays of children in need this Christmas season.

The full-service marketing and advertising agency is continuing a 22-year tradition by donating several dozen stuffed monkeys to the Salvation Army, which will be distributed to area children in need.

The agency purchases a different type of stuffed animal to donate each year, with past year’s selections including otters and owls.

In keeping with its emphasis on website design and promotion, Howell has also developed an interactive online coloring game featuring a monkey character called “Monkey Doodle.”

The Hawaiian-Christmas themed webpage allows kids to create their own colorful drawings and send them to Howell, which will display submissions on its website.

“We enjoy finding creative ways to give back and honor our clients and suppliers,” Howell Creative Group President and Creative Director Kathy Howell said in a recent news release.
