CORSICANA - Northland Communications is pleased to announce they donated over 60 toys to the Navarro County Children’s Advocacy Center this Holiday Season. Northland held a toy drive from Dec. 1 to Dec. 20, asking customers to donate a toy with a value of $20 or more in exchange for free installation on their services.  

Northland was able to collect over $1,200 worth of toys to donate to children in need. Toys ranged from play kitchens, to Hot Wheels tracks, to Baby Alive Dolls, and even an electric four wheeler.  

The Northland employees were moved by the generosity of their customers. A few customers voluntarily brought more than one toy. One gentleman said, “I couldn’t give just one. I wanted to give a cool toy to both a boy and a girl.”

Northland Communications would like to thank their customers for the support in the Toy Drive.

“Our local Northland employees, including myself, are overjoyed with the response to the toy drive,” said Kelsey Teel, Marketing Coordinator. “The quality of toys we collected was outstanding, and we were so happy to pass them on to a great organization like the Navarro County Children’s Advocacy Center where they will be given to children who truly need them. We sincerely thank the community for their participation in giving this Holiday season.”  

Please call your local Northland Communications office at (903) 872-3131 if you have questions about Northland’s Annual Toy Drive or about any of the services they provide.
