Greenville's Christmas Party Toys Give-Away 2012

Greenville's Christmas Party Toys Give-Away 2012

Topped Santa’s Spree!


Greenville branch manager Kenny Uko and his staff glowed with the Christmas Spirit as they prepared for the upcoming Christmas party, identifying gifts for either boys or girls of certain ages, and wrapping the presents carefully. Maybe it was the Christmas music in the background, or because giving away presents is such a fun task, but the camaraderie amongst everyone was palpable. Giving is so good for the soul. Can’t let Santa have all the fun!

 

The toys were donated from the Marine Toys for Tots program, and the amount of gifts totaled over 220 pieces. The annual Greenville party planners have gotten their organization down, and know just how to phrase the request in the flyer: “Please recommend less-privileged and needy kids.” In that way, they know exactly who will be getting each gift, which helps in the toy distribution. This is especially great because the prior solicitation allows for satisfying a child’s individual request. The flyer also suggests, “Let’s put a smile on Jersey City children!” This Christmas Party certainly did.

The Greenville Christmas Party TOYS GIVE-AWAY 2012 was able to make over 210 children happy for Christmas. It is a wonderful life!

Just see how big the smiles are on the faces of Greenville staff members Mary Bronner and Ronalee Chatman!
