Tower of Toys Donates Holiday Gifts to Spaulding Youth Center

January 17, 2019

Spaulding Youth Center is thrilled to announce it was chosen as a gift recipient by the 7th Annual Tower of Toys hosted in Manchester, NH. For the second consecutive year, the organization received a generous donation of toys and gifts for its students and children.

Coordinated and promoted by Manchester-based businesses, the Tower of Toys is a charity organization that collects toys for families and children in need during the holiday season. The goal each year is to build a “tower of toys” in the atrium of the Beacon Building on 814 Elm Street in Manchester, New Hampshire. Over the past seven years, the number of participating businesses has increased as has the tower’s impact.

“Witnessing the so many local companies from a wide variety of industries come together in the spirit of generosity and charity for those in need is truly inspiring,” said Carol Lawrence-Erickson, Tower of Toys Founding Sponsor and Red Arrow Diner Owner & President. “The Tower of Toys is a passionate collection of people who truly want to improve the lives of underserved children and families by offering brighter holidays. Spaulding Youth Center is an organization that strives to accomplish that and so much more, each and every day through programs and services on their campus.”

Spaulding Youth Center serves many students and families from the greater Manchester area and is honored to accept the donations on behalf of these local children and their families. The gifts were distributed to those children who live on its campus in Northfield, New Hampshire as well as to day student families who were in need during the holiday season.

“We are thrilled that Tower of Toys selected our children for this extremely generous donation of toys and gifts this past holiday season,” said Susan C. Ryan, President & CEO of Spaulding Youth Center. “Because of their support, our children found delightful gifts wrapped for them under the tree on Christmas morning. Every child deserves to have long-lasting and positive holiday memories and the Tower of Toys certainly helped us fulfill this need for our children this year.”
