As part of its philanthropic efforts, the South Florida-based TradeShow Teacher helped collect toys and other gifts for a toy drive sponsored by a local police department.
A consulting, management and marketing firm, TradeShow Teacher participated in the event
as part of its TST CARES initiative, which encourages its team members to participate in altruistic acts and give back to their local communities.
In the spirit of the holiday season, TradeShow Teacher team members gathered donations for a local toy drive sponsored by the Aventura Police Dept. in southern Florida. The donations will be passed along to the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program, which provides age- and gender-appropriate gifts to underprivileged children up to 17 years old.
“Because of the generosity of each member of your staff, our 2012 Holiday Toy Drive will place even more toys in the hands of children. During these hard-hit economic times, it is nice to know that members of our community are always willing to help out,” said Steven Steinberg, Aventura Chief of Police, in a thank-you letter.
TradeShow Teacher team members are recognized in the firm’s monthly newsletter for their inspired contributions to good causes on a local or global level in an attempt to encourage others to get involved as well as to provide additional exposure to the organizations seeking support.
“We are so excited about our first holiday toy drive for less fortunate kids,” said Linda Musgrove, president and founder, TradeShow Teacher. “We collected trucks, dolls, puzzles, dress-up party wear, lunch boxes, Play-Doh and even sports gear. We are proud of our inaugural effort and anticipate this to become a tradition that grows each year along with our business and staff. Every child deserves to open gifts during the holidays.”
