Delivery Of An Abundance Of Gifts To St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital A Most Welcome Offering

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. (January 30, 2013) — As President & CEO of Townsend & Associates, Inc., a nationally recognized staffing & recruiting firm providing cutting edge staffing solutions to Fortune 500, small- and medium-sized companies alike, Michael Townsend is proud of many of his firm’s accomplishments during its 14 years in business.

But none more than its recent Holiday Toy Drive efforts to benefit the St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital of Paterson, N.J.

Hosting a Holiday Party & Toy Drive this past December 19 for local businesses, clients and other associates, the event was deemed a huge success as a result of the mountain of toys received for the benefit.

Then just prior to Christmas, Townsend personally delivered the abundance of toys to St. Joseph’s and its Child Life Coordinator Tiffany Shevchik, who was most appreciative of the offering.

“We were so impressed with the response we received from those who attended our Holiday Party,” expressed Townsend.  “Some people brought more than one gift, and we touch by such an outpouring of goodwill.”

As for the delivery of the toys to the hospital, Townsend was told by hospital personnel “that our donation was significant and much appreciated, and that there were many children who were going to have a wonderful holiday because of the kindness of those who attended our event.”

Townsend said they will continue this event each holiday season, with the hopes that it grows larger each year.

“The mission of St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is very dear to our hearts, and we’ll always strive to help in any way we can,” added Townsend.

St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is part of the St. Joseph’s Healthcare System, and sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth.  The hospital was founded in 1867.  St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center and St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital are three-time recipients of the Magnet Award for Nursing Excellence, which is the highest recognition awarded by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, recognizing them for sustained excellence since 1999.
