Team Schein members (TSMs) from across the globe participated in the 19th Annual Holiday Cheer for Children program helping to celebrate the holidays with more than 1,000 underserved children.
TSMs from 20 Henry Schein locations in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Spain and Germany sponsored individual children and their families in order to gift them with toys, clothing and games for the holidays while their parents received gift certificates to major supermarket chains.
"We at Henry Schein are committed to giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and the Holiday Cheer for Children program is a perfect example of how our Team Schein Members embody that spirit of generosity," Gerry Benjamin, Henry Schein's executive vice president, said in a press release. "For 19 years, we have celebrated this program and cherished the smiles of countless children and families, and we look forward to many more smiles in the years to come."
Henry Schein has an office in Elmhurst and employs nearly 20 people. The Holiday Cheer for Children program is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares and is supported by the company’s foundation.
