STORE Capital Employees Donate and Volunteer for foster kids
STORE Capital employees recently volunteered to assist Arizona Helping Hands, the largest provider of essential needs for foster children in the state, by collecting toys and preparing gift bags for the organization’s 21st Annual Holiday Toy Drive. This marks the second consecutive year STORE has made a commitment to the charity, which provides essential needs for children in foster care.
More than 200 toys were amassed in a company-wide toy drive contest that included all STORE employees and saw large collection boxes overflowing with toys throughout the company’s offices.
On the day of the event, a group of employees rallied to deliver the gifts to Arizona Helping Hands’ facility and assemble gift baskets. In total, STORE Capital employees were able to create more than 100 gift baskets filled with toys, arts and crafts, books, stuffed animals and much more. Each bag was assigned to a family with foster children ranging from infants to teenagers.
Arizona Helping Hands is a nonprofit organization that provides underprivileged children the necessities they need for a sustainable living. In 2019, they distributed 3,263 beds, 3,204 birthday gifts and gathered over 10,551 volunteer hours. This holiday season, they will have assisted over 700 families and more than 3,500 children in the state of Arizona.
“We are extremely proud of our employees’ commitment to our community,” said Chris Volk, STORE Capital CEO. “We are pleased to work with Arizona Helping Hands and honored by the volunteer efforts of our employees in helping with their mission in support of foster children.”
