Meridian Employees Rally to Support Shelter with Holiday Gift Drive

Shelter_Logo-Centered_2_1

For the past 20 years, the Teterboro Airport community has come together to deliver holiday cheer to local mothers and their children who are victims of domestic violence, including emotional, economic, sexual and physical abuses. Consequently, these families have fled from their dysfunctional environments and are receiving safety, strength & hope at the Center for Hope and Safety. Although the shelter’s name has changed from Shelter Our Sisters to the Center for Hope and Safety, their mission has remained the same. Donations are now being accepted to help those suffering from domestic violence to help make their holiday a little more special. Items being collected include toys, apparel, gift cards, appliances, recreational and entertainment gifts.

Meridian employees have always answered the call and given generously in past years. The donation drive has begun again for this holiday season, and Meridian colleagues will be able to participate by dropping off new, unwrapped gifts into collection boxes located throughout the FBO. When the donation drive is finished, the gifts will be collected and driven over to the main Airport Operations building at Teterboro Airport for pick-up by the Center for Hope and Safety.

Together, we can continue the tradition of helping these families by providing them with a warm and loving holiday for 2014. Please join us in donating new, unwrapped merchandise such as:

- Apparel
- Electronics
- Donations for boys and girls in their early teens
- Household items
- Gift Certificates / Gift Cards
- Infant care items such as baby food, diapers, etc.
- Non-perishable food items
- Toys and games for children of all ages

You may also drop-off your donation at:

Airport Services
111 Industrial Avenue, Bldg. 1
Teterboro, NJ 07608

For inquiries, please contact an Airport Services Holiday Coordinator:
Lauren (201) 393-4080 or Terri (201) 807-4020

The donation deadline is Friday, December 19, 2014.

Thank you for your support!
