MIDDLEBURY, CT -- Starion Energy, Inc. employees collected over $2,500 in toys, enough gifts to fill an entire pickup truck...

This is the sixth consecutive year that Starion Energy, Inc. has donated to a local or national charity.  "The company response to this year's toy drive was incredible and one of our most successful toy drives yet; our employees are always willing to support great local and national charities," said Customer Support Representative Elisa Santiago.  She also shared that, "the owners and employees of the company enjoy giving back and helping the community especially around the holidays." 

This year's toy drive again benefited pediatric oncology patients at Smilow Children's Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut.  "We really wanted to help provide pediatric patients with comfort, enjoyment, and support while they are receiving inpatient and outpatient care. These toys are not just for the holidays but are also given to patients throughout the year to help comfort and support these children during their recovery process," added Lisa Schmidt, Office Manager at Starion Energy.

The annual holiday toy collection drive is just one of many ways the company tries to be involved in its local community, state, and national charities.
