The holidays tend to bring out the best in all of us, and that is especially true of our partners and insureds at Northeast Treatment Centers. NET is already an incredible organization, with over 800 compassionate and professional staff members providing a continuum of trauma informed behavioral health and social services to 10,000 consumers annually. These services include: mental health, addiction treatment, foster care, residential group care, adoption, juvenile justice services and child welfare services. These activities increase exponentially over the holidays, specifically through the efforts of their annual toy drive and “adopt a family program”. In order to help with these efforts, NSM Insurance Group is proud to present NET with a $10,000 donation to be used across all programs.
The toy drive collection serves families within the NET Community Care (child welfare) program in addition to children and youth receiving behavioral health services and children whose parents are receiving addiction treatment. In 2018 NET raised over $12,000 as well as received hundreds of toys to be distributed to 300+ families and 650+ kids. The adopt a family program also made a significant impact, with 20+ families adopted through NET’s donor network and 50+ families adopted specifically by the Volunteers of America’s holiday program.
“We are so proud to work with such an incredible organization in NET and its even more amazing to experience firsthand the impact they can make in the community through efforts like the toy drive and adopt a family program”
Sean Conaboy, Insurance Advisor, NSM Insurance Brokers
“We are extremely appreciative of NSM’s generous donation! Our holiday programs would not be possible without the support and commitment of our generous partners and donors. The families that NET serves face many complex issues and for many of them poverty is just one of their struggles. Our hope is that by providing toys and gifts during the holidays we are able to alleviate some of stress and bring a little joy and happiness to families and their children”
Karla Eyre, Grants Manager, NET
If you would like to contribute to these amazing programs, don’t worry, there’s still time! The easiest way is to order the toys directly through Amazon, where NET has set up a Shopping List to make orders and deliveries convenient and fast. Simply go smile.amazon.com and search for “NET” under Charity Lists. If you do not have an AmazonSmile account, then you will be asked to create one before you can search the “Charity Lists”. If you have already purchased new and unused toys, they can also be dropped off at NET: 499 N. 5th St., Suite A, Philadelphia, 19123
