Teenage diarist Anne Frank wrote more than half a century ago these powerful and wise words from one so young.
“No one has ever become poor from giving.”
To honor the spirit of giving to those in need, LLoyd is proud to participate in Giving Tuesday 2018.
All year long, LLoyd Staffing partners with JDRF to fight Type 1 Diabetes through our Placements with a Purpose Program.
However, for the Holiday Season 2018, we have added a unique grassroots program to our corporate citizenship initiatives.
Birthday Wishes of Long Island brings birthday parties to homeless children.
They recognize the importance of a birthday in a child’s life and believe that the gift of a birthday celebration provides normalcy, joy and hope in these children’s otherwise unsettled lives.
Their philosophy fosters the spirit of volunteerism and community service in the adults, children and families who donate their time and resources to the organization’s mission. Take a look at this VIDEO.
In 2018, nearly 3,000 families are homeless on Long Island which includes more than 1,800 children/youth.
Birthday Wishes of Long Island brings onsite parties to shelters for kids ages 1 to 18. Additionally, their Birthday-in-a-Box program provides a party box (cake, candles, decorations and birthday gifts) to children and their families staying in domestic violence safe shelters, hotels and other scattered sites. Their organization even has a volunteer team of monthly bakers making homemade cakes.
Currently, they are accepting the following NEW toy donations. (Their site has a full list of guidelines.)
- Toddler Toys
- Toddler, Children’s and Teen Books
- Board Games
- Playing Cards
- Arts/Crafts Sets
- Dolls and Action Figures
- Sports Equipment
- You can even order/buy off their Amazon Wish List.
The good folks at Birthday Wishes believe that they can make the world a better place, one person at a time. We believe this too – that’s why our employees are making toy donations this year to the Birthday Wishes of Long Island program. We invite our clients, candidates and temporary/consultant associates to join us – it’s not just a day, it’s the season of giving – let’s be the change. Thank you.
