Middletown, N.Y. – September 14, 2017 – Each year, Crystal Run Healthcare helps provide local students with the tools necessary for them to succeed and be productive in school.  For the eleventh consecutive year, Crystal Run employees purchased backpacks and school supplies to be donated to families throughout Sullivan, Orange and Rockland Counties.  This year’s school supply drive was an ongoing partnership between Crystal Run Healthcare, the Town of Wallkill Boys and Girls Clubs, 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 second year that the practice has worked with People to People’s ‘Back to School with Dignity’ program. 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. 


“Beginning the school year with the right tools provides children facing difficult times with hope, motivation, and encouragement.  It is because of the ongoing generosity of our many employees that we can help hundreds of students begin the school year, ready to succeed,” said Tara Kammarada, Director of Human Resources at Crystal Run Healthcare.
