Melville, NY (December, 2013) The Federated Group held their annual corporate toy drive in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island (BBBSLI) and collected hundreds of gifts as part of BBBSLI’s Holiday for Kids’ Sake program. In addition, the company fulfilled the wish list of 25 children who provided specific requests for toys and clothing this year.
“We are so grateful for the extraordinary efforts of the Federated Group led by Jon Levitt and John Guirguis,” said Susan Samaroo, BBBSLI Chief Program Officer. “This year they went above and beyond anyone’s expectations by sponsoring twenty-five children and donating hundreds of other toys and gift items to the families we serve across Long Island.”
Jon Levitt, Federated’s CEO states, “The holidays have notably been a challenging time of year for many children and their families that live in our communities.
Topping last year’s efforts, our employees once again came together and donated generously for a third year in a row to support BBBSLI and the wonderful work they not only during the holidays but year round. This year, was a little more special for me personally. My 5 year old daughter Sara’s Daisy Troop, led by my wife Holli and my mother Pat, made crafts and sold them to their family members to raise $311 which they presented to BBBSLI.”
