AmeriCare Medical, Inc. of Troy delivers a message of hope to needy youngsters through Toys for Tots

December 17, 2010

Troy, MI – AmeriCare Medical recently dropped off three full boxes of donated toys to the Pontiac Toys for Tots location.   Multiple in-house and field employees, patients and members of the community brought toys to the AmeriCare office give to children for the holidays.

AmeriCare chooses to support a different charity each year for the holiday season, and selected Toys for Tots because of its ability to impact hundreds of thousands of families each year, providing Christmas gifts for needy children.  The stated objective of Toys for Tots is to help needy children throughout the United States to experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable natural resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

AmeriCare is thrilled to be able to help Toys for Tots this holiday season.   “In our everyday work, our employees are used to giving and caring for people, but we like to pay particular interest during the holiday season in providing joy to children who are less fortunate,” says Company President Greg Jamian.

According to Toys for Tots assistant Christle Payton, there is a lot of need for toys for Christmas in Oakland County.  Their volunteers spend days each year sorting and handing out toys to thousands of families.  “Every year, we have about 2,500 families come into our office,” she says.  “Over 10,000 children get their Christmas toys from us.  They all come in with lists of things they want, and we try our best to give them exactly what they ask for.”

Because of the low number of volunteers for 2010, AmeriCare Medical employees were happy to deliver their own donation to the Toys for Tots office and take a tour of the facility and see how the toys were sorted and given out.  The company is looking forward to being a regular Toys for Tots drop-off location in the coming years.
