Sometimes making life more comfortable means bringing kids some holiday happiness. That’s what Hill Yorkers at the Broward and West Palm Beach offices did as they joined forces in support of 4KIDS of South Florida’s Gift of Hope Toy Drive.
Culminating a weeks-long campaign to benefit local foster children who would otherwise go without, Hill York employees made donations to fuel a substantial toy-buying shopping spree.
“Hill Yorkers are called Comfort Champions for a reason,” said CEO Chip Lafferty. “I am continually proud of the way our employees take action to care for the needs of our customers, our community and each other.”
Employees showed their support by either selecting a designated gift request and buying the item for a child, purchasing a gift after reviewing a list of toys in demand, or providing a monetary donation.
Corinne Berry from the West Palm Beach office got the shopping task, battling Black Friday crowds to gather the goodies. Colleague Brian Haber made the delivery to 4KIDS of South Florida in a filled-to-capacity Hill York vehicle.
“It’s a feel-good mission,” said Berry. “There are a lot of children in need out there and bringing some Christmas joy into their lives is a rewarding experience for the givers and receivers alike.”
4KIDS of South Florida (www.4kidsofsfl.org) is a not-for-profit organization that works directly with abused, neglected and abandoned children.
