This holiday, the employees, friends and clients of Judson & Associates came together with a holiday drive that raised a sleigh-full of toys, gift cards and generous cash donations that allowed young patients at Rogers to enjoy this festive time of year with others in their treatment program.
Each year, the company typically selects an organization each year to support. They learned about Rogers’ need for gift items and ran with the collection, promoting it to business partners, friends, family and on social media. The drive led to gathering $550 in gift cards, many toys and a generous $500 donation from Common Links Construction. What an avalanche of gift-giving!
Melanie Thorne, property manager at Judson & Associates, explained why they chose Rogers Foundation as the recipient of their gift drive. “We are a company that works closely together, and we talk about different matters going on in our lives with our families and friends. We know what is really important to each of us, so it makes it that much more meaningful to give back to organizations that support causes close to our hearts.”

Next up: May is National Mental Health Awareness Month
While the holidays are an especially critical time, we would be happy to assist you with a “Give for a Better Day” drive anytime of the year. Whether it’s through a civic organization, business or retailer, a coping skills drive is an excellent way to help patients at Rogers fill their emotional toolkit with small, but effective, therapeutic items. Contact Linda Schieble or go to MyRogers for details.
