Town of Penfield employees give back through annual holiday giving initiative

The generosity of Town of Penfield employees was on full display over the last few weeks as the Town collected donations to be given to the local charitable organization Penfield Hope.

The initiative, which is done annually and led by the Employee Wellness Committee, offers a chance to help families throughout the community. This year toys, pajamas, and baking mixes were collected to help provide families a little extra holiday cheer this season.

Along with cash donations, the Town collected:
  • 30 pairs of pajamas
  • 25 baking mixes
  • 40 craft kits

“It feels great to give back,” said Employee Wellness Committee Lead Laura Sliker. “Our staff does an incredible job coming together and supporting those in our community through programs like this.”

Donations were dropped off at Penfield Hope on Thursday, November 10 to be distributed to area families in preparation for the holiday season.

“I’d like to thank Penfield Hope for partnering with us this year, and also a huge thank you to our staff members who supported the initiative,” added Sliker.
