Crystal Run Healthcare Employees Donate Hundreds of Backpacks and School Supplies


For the past seventeen years, Crystal Run Healthcare has helped provide local students with the supplies necessary for them to succeed in the upcoming school year. This year, Crystal Run employees purchased hundreds of backpacks and various school supplies to be donated to families throughout Sullivan, Orange, and Rockland Counties, through ongoing partnerships with the Town of Wallkill Boys and Girls ClubsNewburgh Armory Unity Center, and People to People in Rockland County. 


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. This is the fifth year that the practice has worked with People to People’s ‘Back to School with Dignity’ program in Rockland. The school supply drive is one of the many philanthropic programs that the employees of Crystal Run Healthcare participate in and support in order to give back to the local communities.


“Our employees continue to blow us away with their generosity year after year during this backpack drive. We hope the donations of backpacks and school supplies give children and parents throughout the Hudson Valley one less thing to worry about this school year. We are grateful to have the opportunity to give back and provide children the tools they need to succeed in school,” said Tara Kammarada, Senior Director of Human Resources at Crystal Run Healthcare.
