Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) November 18, 2014
The Suddath Companies is proud to announce sponsorship of a “Visit from St. Nicholas” on behalf of HandsOn Jacksonville. Suddath® involvement included sponsorship of a full grade level, or about 100 children, providing hundreds of toys and books, a VIP table at the HandsOn Jacksonville Fifth Annual Holiday Benefit, as well as event volunteers this past Saturday, Nov. 15 and also on Friday, Dec. 5.
In order to prepare for the Dec. 5 event, Suddath volunteers joined forces with many other local organizations to help assemble and deliver the backpacks. “The ability to do this type of volunteer work, especially at this time of year, has a positive impact,” said Melinda Byrnes, vice president, corporate marketing and business development, “not only on the children receiving these gifts but also on Suddath and our employees. To be able to give back through an organization such as HandsOn Jacksonville, consistently dedicated to volunteerism throughout Northeast Florida, is invaluable and we appreciate the opportunity.”
