Making the Holiday’s Brighter at the New York Amway Business Center
Ho ho ho, Merry Christmas! Donning the proverbial red suit of Santa Claus, Amway Independent Business Owners (IBOs) helped make the holidays a little bit brighter for children in need. This season’s special cause was the Easter Seals New York toy drive, serving children in need between the ages of 0 and 13. The drive set a goal of 200 new or unwrapped toys to be delivered in time for the holidays.
As we’ve come to expect, IBO generosity was up to the challenge. Total donations far exceeded the drive’s goal. From the last week of November through the second week of December, more than 400 special and unique toys were collected from more than 200 IBOs. There were teddy bears, stuffed animals, toy cars, dolls, and even a telescope. Easter Seals New York received so many extra toys that a second, unplanned delivery of more than 60 toys was made to Family Services Long Island.
Thank you to all the IBOs who donated their time and money to make the holiday season a time of joy and fun for children in need. For more information on Easter Seals New York, please visit www.eastersealsny.org or call (222)-220-2290.
