On December 27, 2020, President Trump signed The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, which is the latest COVID-19 emergency relief package providing support for small businesses, schools, health care providers, renters, direct stimulus payments, vaccine distribution, and more.
Given the situation with COVID from lockdown to job loss the Ringfeder Power Transmission team decided that we could do something to help, even if just a little. We decided to use the funds that would normally go to our Christmas Party (COVID cancellation) to provide bikes to the Marine Toys for Tots program.
Our team purchased 26 toddler sized bikes that were delivered unassembled to our Westwood, NJ office. As a team, we spent the better part of the short Thanksgiving holiday week assembling, adjusting, and preparing the bikes for delivery. Everyone in the office participated knowing that the bikes were going to a great cause. The final step is to deliver the bikes on December 2nd giving the program volunteers plenty of time to get the bikes to the families that registered with the program this year. We understand that this year more families are registering for the Toys for Tots program given the difficult times everyone is facing. We are grateful that we can help make someone’s Christmas a little brighter.
Shingle & Gibb Automation is excited to support the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program for our 13th year! Our Moorestown, New Jersey location is an official drop-off site, where community members, Shingle team members and supplier partners can contribute to the Toys for Tots program which has provided 584 million gifts for more than 265 million children since 1947.
For the past several years, Shingle's CEO, Brian Lepsis, has recruited a group of team members to head out and do some serious shopping to fill up multiple shopping carts with toys, games, bicycles and more! The team at Shingle & Gibb is committed to helping very deserving children experience the joy of the season.
