Middletown, N.Y. – September 12th, 2016 – Each year, Crystal Run Healthcare helps provide local students with the tools necessary to be successful and productive in school.  For the tenth consecutive year, Crystal Run employees purchased backpacks and school supplies to be donated to families throughout Sullivan, Orange and Rockland Counties.  Staff members purchased items such as backpacks, binders, notebooks, and calculators as well as an array of other school supplies.  This year’s school supply drive was an ongoing partnership between Crystal Run Healthcare, the Town of Wallkill Boys and Girls Clubs, and People to People in Rockland County.  In total, over 200 backpacks were donated by Crystal Run Healthcare employees. 


Staff from Crystal Run Healthcare first began purchasing school supplies for donation to charities back in 2007 and in 2011, began working with the Boys and Girls Clubs.  The school supply drive is one of many philanthropic programs that the employees of Crystal Run Healthcare participate in and support in order to give back to the local communities.  “Each year, we look forward to helping hundreds of students start the school year prepared to succeed.  Supplies can be overwhelmingly costly, particularly for families with more than one child in school.  Because of our extremely generous employees, we are providing students with essential items that could mean all the difference in motivating them and giving them the confidence to learn.  We are extremely grateful for all of our employees who continuously find ways to help others in need throughout the communities we serve, said Tara Kammarada, Director of Human Resources at Crystal Run Healthcare.
