LS Power Offices Team Up With Cheeriodicals to Support Childrens Hospitals in NY & NJ
LS Power’s New York and New Jersey offices were very happy to hold team building/philanthropy events on July 20 and 21 in partnership with Cheeriodicals to assemble and deliver gift boxes to children at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital in NY and St. Peter’s University Hospital in NJ. The event was originally planned for 2020 but was delayed due to COVID-19. Thanks to the dedication and persistence of our LS Power people and the Cheeriodicals team, we were able to still make it happen 2 years later.
Our day began with over 100 people from our NY and NJ offices gathering to assemble 160 cheerful green boxes of toys for children in hospitals. We set up teams to work together building boxes for children ages 3-8 and for kids 9 and up. Each colorful box included a wide selection of over a dozen age-appropriate toys, books, puzzles and games. Once assembled, volunteers then delivered the gift boxes to the respective hospitals, where they were received by eager young recipients.
Each box included handwritten individual messages to the kids from the teams. When we received a reply card from one of the kids with our names on it, it warmed our hearts.
LS Power had a wonderful time working with Cheeriodicals to bring smiles to the children at hospitals.
