CINCINNATI, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CarePoint Partners treats thousands of patients in the comfort of their homes every day, administering various IV medications so that these patients do not have to go back to the hospital. Since so many of its patients are children, shortly after the company was established, CarePoint decided that being part of Toys for Tots was a great way to partner with people in the communities they serve to deliver joy to children during the holidays. In addition to collecting hundreds of toys for needy children, CarePoint set aside five dollars for every referral received during the holiday season which allowed the company to contribute over $14,000 to Toys for Tots national campaign.
CEO of CarePoint Partners, Dana Soper, explained that the primary goal of the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program is to deliver a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters by giving them a Christmas present they may otherwise not receive. "Like the Marines, we too think there is no greater cause than to help kids," she said. "That's why we wanted to do even more. By partnering with hospitals and other providers we were able to contribute significantly to Toys for Tots so that they can continue their worthy mission."
The toys collected by CarePoint Partners at its 26 service locations in 9 states were delivered to children with the assistance of local social welfare agencies, church groups, and other community agencies. "While we helped collect for the toy drive, the ultimate success relied on the support of the local community and the generosity of the people who donated toys," says Soper. "We thank all of them for spreading joy this holiday season and we especially thank our partners for their generous support of our fund drive."
