Through the Holiday Cheer program, children are sponsored by Team Schein Members, who contribute their own time and money to ensure that each child's holiday wishes come true. Clothing, toys, games, and other gifts are presented to participating children and their families at special holiday celebrations held at many Henry Schein locations.

"Henry Schein's Holiday Cheer program underscores a spirit of giving among Team Schein Members and their families, which should be central to the holiday season," said Gerry Benjamin, Henry Schein's Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer.  "A wonderful quality of the program is that many Team Schein Members involve their own families in the selection of gifts for the children who are sponsored.  In this way, Holiday Cheer lets Team Schein Member families share this important activity and helps cultivate a sense of volunteering and giving back."

This year, Henry Schein once again partnered with a number of local social service organizations to help identify families in need.
