HOLIDAY, Fla.: With the support of Benton Global, children’s charity Kids Wish Network was recently able to provide over $60,000 worth of comforting new gifts to children suffering from life-altering situations. Benton Global donated the shipping for the charity’s Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program that delivered to three facilities in the southeast. The company also provided shipping for a recent incoming in-kind donation.
Kids Wish Network’s Holiday of Hope Gift Bank is an uplifting, gift-giving program that brings cheer to children. These Gift Banks provide emergency rooms, pediatric units, and other children’s care facilities with age appropriate toys that offer a welcome distraction to young children from upsetting and often traumatic experiences.
These wonderful toys and children’s products provided through the Gift Bank not only benefit kids who are coming in for just a brief visit, but also the children who may be spending longer periods of time due to more complicated situations. A soft, plush toy can quickly dry the eyes of a child facing new and frightening circumstances.
Thanks to Benton Global, children in the care of GHS Children’s Hospital and Shriners Hospitals for Children- Greenville in Greenville, S.C., and Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital in Columbia, S.C. will be able to enjoy the comfort of a new gift.
“Benton Global supports Kids Wish Network and their Gift Bank program by shipping gifts for children in need or with medical conditions,” says Belton Global President Trey Childress. “As a team we are committed to care, to serve and to deliver to our customers, and we are pleased to put these values to work helping children in our community through Kids Wish Network.”
“Our Holiday of Hope Gift Banks are a way to provide these children a welcome break from treatments and spread hope and encouragement for a healthier future,” says Kids Wish Network Executive Director Anna Lanzatella. “We are honored to partner with companies, like Benton Global, that are committed to providing joy to children facing life-altering circumstances.”
