JM Family toy drive helps families

Posted on 11 January 2021 by JLusk

Associates from JM Family Enterprises and its subsidiaries banded together to spread holiday cheer, supporting children and families in need with Happy Haul-idays, a first-of-its-kind virtual toy and essential needs drive. Through the campaign, which benefited nonprofit partners in each of the company’s eight business locations, more than 1,050 items were donated and distributed to local families.

To participate in the Happy Haul-idays effort, charity partners provided wish lists of much-needed items from various online retailers. Knowing that the need was greater than ever this year, associates generously shopped and had the donations shipped directly to the nonprofit. Each organization then distributed the gifts to the families they serve.

“I felt relief,” said one emotional mother from the Dumas Wesley Community Center in Mobile, Alabama. “I didn’t have any money at the time, and I was thankful for the bed linens and everything. I was just thankful and excited. It was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.”

Participating charities included:

 – Atlanta Ronald McDonald House
 – Jackson County Family Connection in Commerce, Georgia
 – Grand Prairie Unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Dallas
 – Santa Ana Unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Orange Coast
 – Sulzbacher Center in Jacksonville, Florida
 – Dumas Wesley Community Center in Mobile, Alabama
 – Jim & Jan Moran Unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County
 – Room at the Inn in St. Louis, Missouri

“This was a great way for our associates to rally together and celebrate, even while apart, this holiday season. We are beyond appreciative of their generosity in delivering comfort and joy to children and families who need it most,” said Lisa Davis, manager of Corporate Community Impact, JM Family.
