Clay Family Dealerships drive happiness home for children with cancer in 2nd Annual Toy Drive
Newton, MA – July 1, 2014: Clay Family Dealerships announced today the completion of its second annual fundraiser benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
This year’s campaign was held from April to June at all of the Clay dealership locations, including Clay Nissan of Newton, Clay Nissan of Norwood, Clay Subaru of Norwood, Clay Chevrolet of Norwood, and Clay Hyundai of Norwood. Customers and employees were encouraged to donate $1, $5, or $10. Then, the Clay family matched the customer donations and made a toy purchase valued at almost $1,000.
“St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is grateful to the Clay Family Dealerships for their effort to drive happiness home for St. Jude kids through its generous donation of toys,” said Erin Farrell, ALSAC/St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. “Kids should be enjoying everyday moments like playtime – not worrying about cancer, so this gift will help provide a much-needed distraction for families of St. Jude.”
“Clay Family Dealerships was proud to continue its partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for another year,” said Kim Clay, of Clay Family Dealerships. “We are so elated to see our community take part in our toy drive effort. It is because of our customers, employees, friends, and neighborhoods that we are able to provide smiles to both the children of St. Jude and their families.”
