November 14, 2016 (Springfield, Pa) – Crozer-Keystone Health System employees have a long-standing tradition of helping their neighbors in need through numerous community outreach efforts, including the health system’s annual toy drive. This year’s toy drive is scheduled from Nov. 21 to Dec. 16. The Community Action Agency of Delaware County (CAADC) is the beneficiary for the toy drive, so every donation will benefit people right here in Delaware County.
Members of the local community are invited to participate alongside Crozer-Keystone employees in this effort by choosing from multiple drop-off locations within the health system. In addition, the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce has agreed to continue its participation with this campaign and will have a drop-off location inside the Chamber office, which is located at 1001 Baltimore Pike, Ste 9LL in Springfield. The CAADC has partnered with other community partners as well in Delaware County who have agreed to serve as drop-off locations, and these locations can be found at www.caadc.org.
For the Crozer-Keystone toy drive from Nov. 21 to Dec. 16, toys should be new and unwrapped. The toys will be donated to children under 15 years old.
