What gifts should we send out from our corporate office this year? We wanted to do something meaningful especially in light of the current reality. As a team, we decided to adopt two families from Long Island, NY where our corporate headquarters is based.
Holiday Dreams is a Long Island based charity organization that gives children and their families hope during the holidays. They provide essentials and gifts to 200-250 families yearly who have fallen on hard times or live in a shelter.
Rhonda Klch, Executive Director of Holidays Dreams, has paired up GRx with three different children from the Jacobs family. They have two girls, ages seven and eight and one boy age 11. This family reached out to Holiday Dreams for help because the father lost his job due to COVID-19 like many other families this year. With our donation, Holiday Dreams was able to get new clothes, shoes, toys, and food gift cards for the family.
Toys for Tots is a well-known charity organization, founded in 1991, whose primary goal is the help bring the joy of Christmas and send a message of hope to America’s less fortunate children through the gift of a new toy. They have reached 7.3 million children in over 800 communities in the past year. GRx has adopted a family to sponsor this holiday season to brighten their holiday season.
The GRx team has always tried to do its part in helping local families. This year, in particular, we knew it was more important than ever.
