The Execu|Search Group has always valued giving back to the community. We combine our efforts as an organization to contribute in many ways, from charity days to toy and coat drives, to make a difference where it matters most. For this year’s holiday season, our various offices worked together to make 2015 one of our most productive years of holiday contributions to date.
For this month’s charity day, Execu|Search employees donated toys to Stockings with Care and New York Presbyterian Children’s Hospital through the Durst Organization. Some also made monetary contributions to help purchase gifts for the children.
In addition, our Women’s Network came together for the second year in a row to donate gifts to the children at Elizabeth Seton Pediatric center, a Yonkers-based organization that was founded to provide specialized clinical and rehabilitative services to medically complex children with multiple physical and neurological conditions and disabilities. “Many of our 159 members contributed this year,” said Katie Niekrash, co-founder of The Women’s Network and the organizer of this annual donation. “I am pleased that we all came together to buy toys, necessities and clothing for these children so that they can have a happy holiday season.”
Our New York office also participated in a coat drive spearheaded by Shelly Landau, Director within our Healthcare division. Together, we donated around 50 coats to New York Cares in an effort to help them reach their goal of 100,000 coats to be distributed to New York City’s homeless.
Finally, under the organization of Managing Director Lisa Carver, both our Bridgewater and Parsippany New Jersey offices contributed to a toy drive for the Department of Child Protection & Permanency (formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services). The organization provided a list of 21 children and their wish lists from their “Pick an Angel” program, all 21 of which were met.
