Northland collects over $1,400 in toys for Christmas

Corsicana — Northland Communications is pleased to announce the success of its Second Annual Toy Drive.  With the help of the community, Northland collected over $1,400 in toys to donate to local children in need this Holiday Season. The toys were delivered to the Navarro County Child Advocacy Center on Dec. 18.

Northland held its Second Annual Toy Drive from Nov. 19th to Dec.14, asking customers to donate a toy valued at $20 or more in exchange for free installation on their services.

The Northland employees were moved by the generosity of their customers and the community. Toys ranged from play kitchens, to Hot Wheels tracks, to Baby Alive Dolls. Some customers went above and beyond the $20 minimum, bringing multiple toys or higher-priced items.

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

“Our local Northland employees, including myself, are overjoyed at the response to the toy drive,” said Kelsey Teel, Marketing Coordinator. “The quality of toys was outstanding, and we were happy to pass them on to a great organization like the Child Advocacy Center where they were given to children who truly needed 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.
