Jersey City, NJ, November 13, 2017 – For many families, Christmas is a time to be joyful and celebrate, but the gift-giving season can also be a stressful time financially. Many of Alaris Health Member Center families have experienced hardship and struggled to afford gifts for their kids to make the holidays brighter.

As such, Alaris Health is excited to announce its second annual participation with the nationwide United States Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. Each Alaris Health Member Center serves as a drop-off location for both Alaris Health team members and community members to donate new, unwrapped toys to be distributed to local children to bring them and their families much needed joy.

All of the toys donated this year will be tallied at the end of the drive. Last year we collected over 450 toys, this year our goal is 1000! Raquel Pecillo-Mulligan, Regional Director of Provider Relations, said about the toy drive, “Alaris Health is always committed to making a difference. Donate this season to Toys for Tots to make a difference in the life of a child.  Every donation counts and together we can make a difference in the lives of many children”.

As a thank you, each person who makes a donation has the chance to win a prize three times a week for the duration of the drive. Simply take a selfie with the Alaris banner at the drop-off location and post it to social media, including #T4TAlaris.

The last day to drop off your new, unwrapped gift donations to any Alaris Health Member Center is Tuesday, December 12.
