The holiday season is a time for giving, so our employees at Bernard Heating & Cooling have spent the past few months thinking about how we can give back to the Hudson community. To help others experience the same Christmas cheer we do, we have decided to take part in the Toys for Tots charity. Our holiday gift drive is currently up and running. In addition to helping needy families in the area, our Toys for Tots drive also gives you the chance to win some neat prizes.
Our First Toys for Tots Collection
In the past, Bernard Heating & Cooling has been involved in all sorts of charitable initiatives. This year, we have turned our focus to one of the most iconic Christmas charities. We are happy to announce that this year will be our first ever-sponsored Toys for Tots collection.
Since 1947, Toys for Tots has been a charitable program that focuses on spreading holiday cheer. Each year, the program collects gifts and gives them to children whose parents cannot afford a holiday gift. Over the years, this great program has given more than 512 million gifts to children. We’re excited to be a part of this great tradition.
Donors Receive Fun Rewards
To start out, we are going ahead and providing some toys to the program ourselves. However, our Toys for Tots drive is about more than just employees contributing to the drive. We’re also encouraging you to take part too.
For some people, just giving a charitable gift can be enough of an incentive. However, we like to reward you if you join our toy drive. If you choose to join our Toys for Tots drives, you get some great incentives.
In addition to helping a child in need, you’ll also be able to keep your HVAC system in good shape. When you bring in a gift, you will get a gift certificate for a helpful Bernard Heating & Cooling service. You can get a free tune-up for your heater or air conditioner. If you prefer to get routine maintenance at least twice a year, we are also offering 50% off our annual maintenance as a reward option.
Donations Go Towards Helping the Local Community
Our Toys for Tots drive is a community-based initiative. We will be sending our gifts to children in the Hudson area who need a Christmas present. We feel that this program is more important than ever for struggling families who may have lost jobs.
This program will help to ensure that many children get to celebrate the holidays alongside their peers. Even one simple gift can be enough to put a smile on a child’s face. Our team looks forward to spreading joy throughout the Hudson community.
More Details About How Our Drive Works
Ready to participate? Start by picking out a new gift for a child or teen. Any toys, clothing, sporting equipment, or other similar gifts are accepted. Toys for Tots prefers not to distribute realistic-looking weapons or food as gifts, though. To find a great gift, Toys for Tots recommends that you think about what the children in your life would like.
After you pick a gift, you have a few options of how to send it to us. If desired, you can drop it off at our Hudson office. However, we are also accepting deliveries if that is easier for you to get the gift to us. Just buy a gift online and have it sent to our address. If you choose to send us a gift from an online shop, we ask that you email us, so we know to look out for your donation and send you your certificate.
For all gifts, Toys for Tots asks that they be unwrapped. This allows for sorting the gifts and ensuring they are distributed to the right age group. Once sorted, your gift will be wrapped before it is passed on to the children in need.
The Toys for Tots drive will be our main initiative throughout December, but we still provide help and assistance in the Hudson community year-round. Our team of highly trained technicians is always here to help with your HVAC needs. We install, maintain, and repair a variety of heating and cooling equipment.
