CVS/pharmacy and the New York State Fraternal Order of Police help Easter Seals New York host the largest Community Outreach yet

PORT JERVIS, N.Y., Dec. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Monday, December 14th, CVS/pharmacy, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police and dozens of volunteers came together at Easter Seals New York's Child Development Center, Project Discovery, in Port Jervis, to distribute toys, coats and food to families in need. Hundreds of local families attended the Community Outreach and received items for the holiday season such as ham, canned goods and produce, clothing, and toys for their children - who even enjoyed a special visit from Santa!

CVS/pharmacy kicked off the groundbreaking day when they arrived with trucks and vans containing more than 2,000 toys for the Hudson Valley area children - double the amount distributed at last year's outreach! Scott McElfresh, Easter Seals New York Hudson Valley Board Member and Region Manager at CVS/pharmacy said, "Every year, we do our best to make sure that children in the Port Jervis community have at least one toy for the holiday season. We know how difficult it can be for parents in the community to provide the bare necessities for their families and we are happy to help provide items from "Santa's List" for the children."

In addition to the thousands of toys collected by CVS/pharmacy, the New York State Fraternal Order of Police provided essentials such as food and clothing for families to take home. John McGrath, Senior Vice President of Organizational Development for Easter Seals New York said, "The spirit of the holiday season truly shines through at December's Community Outreach. We feel extremely lucky to have this magnitude of support from CVS/pharmacy and the New York State Fraternal Order of Police - they give us the ability to reach out and make a difference in the lives of the families living here."
