MER - 2018 Dec - Toy Donation.JPGEach year at the Holiday Season, the Sharon Salvation Army sponsors a toy drive entitled, "Treasures for Children."  Gift tags for young children from Mercer County communities are provided to help in choosing gifts for the children.  Each tag indicates the first name, age, and gender of the child, clothing sizes, and several toy items on the child's wish list.  SCI Mercer has participated in this program for over ten years.

Once the tags are received at the facility, they are displayed for SCI Mercer staff to choose a child or more than one if they so choose.  This December, staff volunteered to donate gifts for 50 children for them to have a treasure to open for the holiday. 

Thanks to all who participated in this annual event to brighten the lives of many from the Mercer County communities. 

Officer Jason Ellis and HR Analyst Christi Griffin, along with volunteers from the Salvation Army, helped Andrea Shiock load the truck.

Happy Holidays to all from SCI Mercer.
