The holidays are the season of giving, and Myron Corp. has celebrated that spirit by participating in the Angel Program for the last 10 years. The charity, which is sponsored by the Salvation Army, collects gifts for needy children who might not otherwise receive any presents for the holidays.
Since 2002, Myron employees have donated gifts for over 750 children. More than 40 workers participated this year and gave multiple presents. The toys and gifts will be distributed later this week and over the weekend. The number of presents given this year will hopefully eclipse 2011’s number to bring joy to even more children.
In recent years, Myron Corp. has also started holding food and clothing drives during the holiday season. Employees anonymously donated non-perishable foodstuffs and warm winter clothing for needy families. The food was distributed prior to Thanksgiving, so that families could celebrate and enjoy a traditional holiday meal.
It’s better to give than it is to receive during the holidays. Myron Corp. has given back to the community to make sure that every family can enjoy the most wonderful time of the year. These donations will help needy children and their parents enjoy the seasonal cheer.
