Henry Schein's 17th Annual Holiday Cheer for Children Spreads Joy to More Than 1,000 Children and Their Families

 

In 2015, Henry Schein is spreading joy to more than 1,000 children and their families through its 17th annual “Holiday Cheer for Children” program, a flagship initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the Company’s global social responsibility program.


Participating children and their families are presented with toys, clothing, games, and other gifts purchased by Team Schein Members, who spend their own time and money to sponsor individual children. In addition, families in need are presented with gift certificates to major supermarket chains through the program. To help identify children and families who would benefit from participating in the Holiday Cheer for Children program, Henry Schein partners with local social service organizations at a number of company locations.


Children and their families receive their gifts at Henry Schein locations throughout the U.S. The Company’s largest event took place December 3rd at Henry Schein’s global headquarters in Melville, New York, where Team Schein Members presented their gifts to 700 Long Island children at a superheroes-themed celebration. The event included a special dinner, a chocolate fountain, a cotton candy machine, music, games and festivities, and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.


“It is wonderful to see Team Schein embracing the spirit of the season and giving so selflessly to ensure that these children and their families have a joyful holiday experience,” said Gerry Benjamin, Henry Schein’s Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer. “Team Schein Members bring an enthusiasm to Holiday Cheer for Children that is matched only by their generosity, and this program’s tremendous success embodies the Company’s commitment to giving back to local communities.”


Holiday Cheer for Children is supported by the Henry Schein Cares Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization that works to foster, support and promote dental, medical and animal health by helping to increase access to care for communities around the world.
