Through Scrimmage Cares, The Scrimmage Team Gives Back This Holiday Season
In association with its philanthropic arm, Scrimmage Cares, the Scrimmage team launched a 2019 holiday giving initiative supporting The Children’s Specialized Hospital, an RWJ/Barnabas Health facility, in New Brunswick, NJ.
As one of several in-kind ways to give, the Scrimmage team together created over 100 personalized activity gift bags for the young patients. Ranging with play items from crayons, pens, books, stickers, stamps, Play-doh to noise makers, bubbles and yo-yo’s, an activity bag not only makes a patient be creative, have fun and feel like a kid again, but it also supports his/her therapy.
Further, this drive was initiated by a Scrimmage team member in the Princeton office, as employees are always encouraged to bring forth charitable organizations, initiatives and donation ideas.
“With the Children’s Specialized Hospital near and dear to my heart,” notes Fran Newell, Implementation Manager for Scrimmage, “I cannot say enough about how easy the Community Engagement Team facilitated our giving, along with their true gratitude, warm hospitality, eye-opening tour of an incredible facility and endless ideas of ways to give! The Scrimmage Cares program makes Scrimmage such a special place to work. It’s a great feeling and truly heart-warming to be able to give back, as well as to see this drive be so supported by everyone.”
“Thank you so much for thinking of our kids, we truly appreciate it,” says Alexis A. D’Anton, Community Engagement Manager of the Children's Specialized Hospital Foundation. “While the need is year-round, your timing of the activity gift bags was perfect to support our holiday party, sponsored by PSE&G. To see the children light up and be joyful, as they discover what’s inside, it is always the best feeling. We look forward to having you back in support of more giving opportunities in 2020. After all, it is the constant support of groups like yours that allows us to grow each and every day; expanding our services to help over 37,000 kids reach their best and full potential. Thank You Again to the Scrimmage Team!”
