Milestone employees come together for a good cause over the holidays
Minneapolis, MN. USA (DEC 2011) - www.milestone.com - The employees at Milestone AV Technologies have embraced the holiday spirit and gathered over 100 gifts for young patients at Gillette Children’s Hospital.
Each holiday season, Milestone provides support for children and families in need with hopes of helping them have a meaningful holiday season. Gillette’s was chosen because of the extra effort they make to help those kids who cannot be home for the holidays. The hospital staff uses the donations to surprise each child with a gift and a stocking filled with small items. Milestone employees gathered items from Gillette’s wish list, ranging from small toys to crafts to electronics. According to Anne Miller, Supervisor of Gillette’s Child & Family Services Division, Milestone’s contribution goes a long way to improve the spirits of both the kids and their families.
"We are very proud of our employees for coming together and donating an incredible number of gifts to Gillette Children’s Hospital," said Laurie Englert, Milestone Vice President of Corporate Communications. "Gillette’s is an amazing organization that truly has the patient’s needs in mind and we are happy to contribute and be part of such a giving community."
