Richmond Window Corporation and Cheeriodicals Utilize Team Building to Spread Cheer to Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU
RICHMOND, Va., December 6, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Representatives from Richmond Window Corporation, Central Virginia's exclusive source for Renewal by Andersen window and door replacement, partnered with Cheeriodicals to assemble and deliver 152 "big green boxes of cheer" to patients at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU on Dec. 5, 2017.
Approximately 30 Richmond Window Corporation employees volunteered their time to assemble the Cheeriodicals gift boxes, which were filled with magazines and activity books, room decorations, puzzles, stickers, and games for the children to enjoy.
"I've had the wonderful opportunity to participate in Renewal by Andersen's partnership with Cheeriodicals, just this past January in Orange County, California. It was such a moving experience for everyone involved and I wanted to bring that joy to our team, and most importantly, the Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU," said Lucy Conrad, Marketing Director at Richmond Window Corporation. "I cannot thank Cheeriodicals enough for the work they do and I am overjoyed to meet the children, families and staff that will be impacted due to this event."
What a rewarding event to have everybody here, working together as a team for such a noble cause. At the end of the day, the thing that really made it matter was just to see the smiles on those children.
Says Gary Parisher, President at Cheeriodicals, "We were thrilled to lead the Richmond Window Corporation team to assemble the Cheeriodicals for delivery to the patients and families at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU. Giving back is ingrained in their corporate culture and we witnessed the giving mentality of their energetic team members throughout this day of giving."
After a special delivery to the hospital, free of charge, by Two Men and a Truck of Richmond, Richmond Window Corporation and Cheeriodicals representatives began handing out the boxes to patients and families at the hospital. Staff from the Child Life department at Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU coordinated the delivery at the hospital.
"As Child Life Specialists, we come to work every day to help children and families cope more effectively in the hospital," said Heather Rossi, Senior Child Life Specialist. "Donations like these help us make the hospital a little more fun during the holidays and throughout the year. We're grateful for our community partners who help us make sure that kids come first."
Pitching in for the assembling and delivery of the Cheeriodicals was Richmond Window Corporation president and CEO L. Page Ewell. "What a rewarding event to have everybody here, working together as a team for such a noble cause. At the end of the day, the thing that really made it matter was just to see the smiles on those children," said Ewell.
