Geneseo Communication employees were moved by the overwhelming generosity shown during their 14th annual community Toy Drive, Tuesday December 5th. Enjoying mild temperatures, employees took shifts collecting toys in front of Geneseo Communications, Inc from 8am until 3pm. The community rose to the challenge and in addition to several truckloads of toys the committee also presented the Geneseo Food Pantry with cash donations over $1170. Their efforts, in support of the Geneseo Food Pantry, will not only put toys under the tree for area families in need, but also provide food, clothing and other assistance.
“Our employees look forward to this event every year,” said CEO, Mike McClain. “We are all witnesses to the true meaning of the season through the expressions of giving from folks who drive up and drop off toys and cash in support of this effort,” he said.
In addition to community contributions, local retailers also took part by extending additional discounts and donations toward the drive. Special thanks to Farm & Fleet and Katsch for their support of these efforts.
“Each year this event reminds all of us at Geneseo Communications how very blessed we are to be a part of such a giving community,” said Scott Fitzpatrick, toy drive coordinator. “We are truly witness to the spirit-of-the-season through the amazing generosity of others.”
Geneseo Communications would like to thank our wonderful employees, all of those who drove by to donate gifts and cash and our business partners for coming together with us to make this a season of joy for others!
