Alert Communications again celebrates the holidays by enthusiastically giving and sharing, as well as seeking ways to spread more joy to the community.

Every year, our Alert staff team meets to determine new ways we can give back. This year, we chose to participate in three charitable organizations: The U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation, The Coats For Kids Foundation, and The Buenaventura Mission Can Food Drive.

The program collects new, unwrapped toys each year and distributes those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted. The primary goal of the foundation is to “deliver through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunately youngsters that will assess them into becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.” From in 1991 – 2008, the Foundation supplemented local toy collections with 81.3 million toys valued at $487 million.

San-Buenaventura-Mission-150x127The San Buenaventura Mission has organized a Can Food Drive in order to help feed the homeless and less fortunate in our community this winter. Alert Communication has made it our goal to provide 40 can food baskets for our local Mission. Everyone has worked hard and enthusiastically in order to make this possible.

Coats-for-Kids-150x150The mission of the Coats for Kids organization is to provide new winter coats to children in need, ensuring more children will stay warm in the winter, avoid getting sick, and thus enabling them to attend school regularly. Click here if you would like to make a donation.

“By working collectively as a team we have been able to give back and help the less fortunate children in our community. We are all thankful for what we have been blessed with and grateful to share it with someone who needs it. Just thinking about all of the families we’ll touch this holiday season warms my heart.” said, Andrea Donati, Alert Communications Program Coordinator.
