Jersey City, NJ, December 16, 2016 – 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 first 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, and a new goal will be set for 2017. Registered nurse (RN) Giovanna Balena said about the toy drive, “Every child deserves to open something special on Christmas morning. Knowing we are helping a child smile warms our hearts. Toys for Tots serves families in many of our Member Center communities, so joining forces with the cause is a natural fit.”

As a thank you, each person who makes a donation has the chance to win a daily prize. Simply take a selfie with the Alaris banner at the drop-off location and post it to social media, including #T4TiCareAlaris.

The last day to drop off your new, unwrapped gift donations to any Alaris Health Member Center is Sunday, December 18. For a list of drop-off locations, visit Alternatively, you can support the national Toys for Tots Program by visiting the website at
