Employees Donated Toys to Families in Need throughout Hudson Valley


Middletown, N.Y. – December 21, 2017 – This holiday season, Crystal Run Healthcare is helping to spread joy to many local children.  For the 15th consecutive year, the staff at Crystal Run purchased toys and other gifts to be donated to children and families in need throughout Orange, Sullivan, and Rockland counties. Gifts included items such as books, clothing, dolls, games, puzzles, scooters, and more.  In total, gifts for 550 children were donated via holiday drives organized by local charities including the United Way, Salvation Army, and the Boys and Girls Club.


Beginning in 2002, employees at Crystal Run Healthcare became involved in purchasing holiday gifts for donation to local charities and have continued to do so since then.  Along with numerous other philanthropic programs that employees participate in and support throughout the year, the holiday toy drive is an especially important initiative – one that really makes an impact on every child who receives a gift. “Year after year, I continue to be blown away by our employees and their generous donations to our holiday toy drive, along with their commitment to making the holidays memorable for children. What a wonderful way to honor the spirit of the holidays – spreading joy one smile at a time,” said Mary DeFreitas, Chief Human Resources Officer at Crystal Run.
