MIDDLEBURY, CT --
Starion Energy, Inc. employees collected over $2,000 in toys, enough gifts to fill five large moving boxes. Cars, trucks, Barbie dolls, Legos, Play-Doh, a fishing pole, educational games, sports equipment, Xbox One, Xbox games, popular board games,
infant toys and more were all included. The toy drive ran from just after the
company’s Thanksgiving food drive in November through Dec. 18.
This is the fifth year
Starion Energy, Inc. has donated to a national charity. "The company
response to this year's toy drive was the best ever; our employees are always
willing to open their hearts and wallets every year to support great local and
national charities," said Customer Support Representative Wendy Draskovic. She also shared that, "when those who are less
fortunate are struggling to provide toys for their kids, we want to do
everything we can to help."
This year's toy drive was
extra special because it benefited both local Middlebury families in need and pediatric
oncology patients at Smilow Children's Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. "Our goal this holiday season was to put
smiles on the faces of local children and families in need, as well as provide
pediatric patients with comfort, enjoyment, and support while they are
receiving inpatient and outpatient care", added Lisa Schmidt, Office
Manager at Starion Energy.
Duane Gereski, Marketing
Director at Starion Energy stated, "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. "We have amazing company
ownership and employees that always want to give back to our community. He added, "Starion Energy is just happy to be
able to help, especially around the holidays."
