Holiday Toy Fundraiser at KROC
The holidays can be a challenging time of year for many, which is why giving back to those in need is vital to Freedom Mortgage. This year our Freedom employees volunteered at The Salvation Army's KROC Center in Camden, New Jersey, to host a holiday event to brighten the holiday season for thousands of children. From December 14-17, 1,500 local families were supported at the KROC Center. Every hour, 60 parents/guardians were invited to the KROC Center to shop for their children. Gifts included two toys per child and additional stocking stuffers.
Freedom volunteers walked the Toy Shop frequently to restock items on the toy tables and helped customers pick out gifts for their children. They also opened packages, stored and organized toys according to age-appropriate groups, and broke down boxes.
Freedom is proud to have partnered with the KROC Center. Located on 24 acres, the 125,000 square-foot Salvation Army Kroc Center is the only community center of its kind in Camden, New Jersey. It's a place where people young and old have opportunities to learn and grow, build dreams and friendships, and find hope in a safe, warm, and welcoming environment.
