They say to give is to receive, which is certainly the case for the residents of Montgomery Park in East Amherst, N.Y. The residents of this independent senior living community and its community management team were recently honored for their generous donations in December 2013. The U.S. Marine Corps presented Montgomery Park residents with an award for their sizable collection during the 2013 season of the Toys for Tots program.
"It was so special to see the passion and generosity unfold in the community throughout the 2013 holiday season," said Marie Mease, enrichment coordinator for Montgomery Park. "The amount of toy donations exceeded my highest expectations, and I’m sure created a joyful memory in the lives of many children."
The U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program collects new toys from October through December each year and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in the community. Montgomery Park’s substantial donation of toys covered an entire end of the donation center’s gym!
