Remembering the true spirt of the holiday season, ShelterPoint employees collectively donated over 89 toys to help brighten the holidays for sick kids and children-in-need on Long Island through the John Theissen Annual Toy and Fund Holiday Drive.
A ShelterPoint tradition 8 years running
The John Theissen Children’s Foundation is a local charity on Long Island near and dear to our hearts. When we began working with the John Theissen’s Children Foundation eight years ago, we did not realize it would become an annual tradition for us. But it has become a passion for us, a way to bring joy and give back to our local community during the holiday season. Through the years we have collected hundreds of toys since we began in 2012!
How the John Theissen Children’s Foundation helps
The toy drive helps parents who feel financial strains, but want to provide gifts to their children for the holidays. The JCTF.org enables us to reach those families, and help.
John Theissen has been running this toy drive and other charitable giving events throughout the year since 1992, when he collected over 800 toys. Last year, the John Theissen Children’s Fund provided over 81,000 toys and gift cards for children.
