Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/14/2015 -- Thackray Crane Rental, Inc., located in Philadelphia, has announced the charitable cause it will adopt for the new year to help support the mission of St. Francis – St. Joseph – St. Vincent Homes for Children. As an agency of Catholic Social Services in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the non-profit organization has a proud tradition of serving the needs of children and youth for over 165 years in providing quality and compassionate care to infants, young children, pre-adolescents, and teenagers at risk and in need.
During last month's holiday season, Thackray Crane Rental sponsored a donation drive to benefit the infants and children at St. Francis - St. Joseph - St. Vincent Homes, which at times can reach a capacity of more than 120 residents. Thackray Crane Rental employees graciously donated clothing, diapers, books, toys, bedding essentials, and monetary contributions per the request of a wish list that was provided by the agency's Title One Coordinator, Melissa Bossert Prushen, M.Ed.
Through the donation collection, Thackray Crane Rental was able to acquire many of the items requested on the wish list, and more. The boxes of contributions were shared with the agency on December 23rd, in an effort to provide a memorable Christmas and New Year for the young residents. Melissa Bossert Prushen expressed that both the staff and residents at St. Francis – St. Joseph – St. Vincent were "in awe of (Thackray Crane Rental's) kindness and consideration during the holiday season." Moving forward in 2015, Thackray Crane Rental will continue to support the agency's mission through hosting additional donation drives.
As a family owned and operated company since its inception in 1947, Thackray Crane Rental is proud to give back to the local community and looks forward to providing more gifts in kind that will serve such a worthwhile cause.
