Staten Island, NY (PRWEB) December 04, 2012
‘Tis the season of giving, and The CollegeBound Network is harnessing that spirit of goodwill to provide gifts for children whose stockings might otherwise be empty. Through its philanthropic initiative, CollegeBound Cares, The College Bound Network (CBN) is spearheading a toy drive for children in need.
Since 2006, the educational publishing company, has donated more than 2,000 toys to Hudson Guild, a multiservice community center serving those who live, work, or go to school in Chelsea, NY. This year, CollegeBound Cares is excited to kick off the 2012 Hudson Guild Toy Drive, which will run through December 17 and will benefit boys and girls ages 5 to 12. The children come from low-income families, and oftentimes the donated gifts are the only ones they receive for the holidays.
“The CollegeBound Network has been one of the Hudson Guild’s top donator of toys for many years now, providing gifts for more than 350 children each year,” says Diane Anselmo, CBN’s search engine marketing manager, who spearheads the collection. “The generosity of our staff has been overwhelming in years past, and we look forward to filling up the office with toys again. Most of all, we look forward to making the holiday season a little bit brighter for the children.”
“CBN is deeply committed to our community, and our CollegeBound Cares initiatives are an ideal way for us to demonstrate that commitment,” says Luciano Rammairone, CBN’s founder and president.
Toys will be collected in CBN’s Staten Island corporate headquarters, located at 1200 South Avenue, Suite 202.
