Toys Toys Everywhere!!

Imagine a school full of children…wait, ok so that’s pretty normal.

Imagine a school full of children accompanied by their parents, local companies like Comrise and other community members, all working together for a greater cause! That was the scene at the Beers Street School in Hazlet, NJ, on Monday night. Comrise joined the RAINE Foundation’s Toy Drive and Toy Wrapping Event and found ourselves swept up in rolls and rolls of wrapping with toys everywhere.

The school’s halls were packed not only with people but with more toys than a your typical toy store would carry. We began by sorting the donated gifts by age group and gender, and then began the wrapping! From Dora the Explorer dolls to skateboards, we wrapped it all and had a blast while doing it!

A gift is a perfect way to show someone you love them, but while some of us are able to do that without question, many cannot afford it. We felt it our duty as responsible community members to offer our dedication to our neighbors so they too can celebrate this Holiday Season. We hope you will join us at our next Comrise Community event!
