TROY– CEO and Unity House are once again joining forces to provide holiday gifts to families in need. The joint effort, known as the Holiday Store, engages families who need a little extra help during the holidays and provides a retail-like experience in which parents are offered the opportunity to select age-appropriate gift items for their children.
The agencies are seeking donations to support this effort for the 2015 holiday season. “We are in need of unwrapped new or gently-used toys, educational items, books, gift cards and other gift items for children from birth to age 17,” said Erin Bradley, CEO’s Director of Program Operations. “We are so thankful to our generous supporters who consistently help us make the holidays bright for those living in difficult circumstances.”
Donations can be dropped off at CEO’s Community Resource Center at 2328 Fifth Ave. or at Unity House’s Front Door at 2431 Sixth Avenue, both in Troy. Monetary donations are also gladly accepted and can be made online at http://www.ceoempowers.org/
