Over Four-Hundred Toys Donated to Children and Families in Need

Middletown, Rock Hill, and West Nyack N.Y. – December 22, 2015 – Crystal Run Healthcare is helping to bring joy to many local children and families in need this holiday season.  The staff at Crystal Run purchased toys and other gifts out of their own pockets to be donated to those in need throughout Rockland, Orange, and Sullivan Counties, including items such as books, bicycles, dolls, games, teddy bears, and clothing, as well as many other gifts. The “Angel” gifts, which were purchased by employees in Crystal Run’s Orange and Rockland County offices, were donated to the Salvation Army as part of their Angel Tree program. The “Snowmen” gifts were purchased by Crystal Run employees in the Rock Hill and Liberty offices and were donated to the United Way of Sullivan County as part of their Project Care Snowmen. In total, over 440 “Angels” and “Snowmen” gifts were donated to the local charity organizations by the employees of Crystal Run Healthcare.

Crystal Run Healthcare employees first became involved in purchasing holiday gifts for donation to local charities back in 2002 and have continued to do so since then.  Along with a variety of many other philanthropic programs that employees of Crystal Run Healthcare participate in and support throughout the year, the holiday toy drive is especially important to bring smiles to children’s faces during the holidays.  “Again this year, our staff’s generosity and commitment to children in need remains enormous.  It is truly an inspiration to see the number of gifts that our employees have donated, and I could not be more proud of them for always finding ways to help others in need, especially during the holiday season. Their generosity is unwavering,” said Mary DeFreitas, Chief Human Resources Officer at Crystal Run Healthcare.
