Exelon Team Brings Area Children Holiday Cheer
POTTSTOWN PA – Games, dolls, trucks, stuffed animals, and clothing all arrived last week at the YWCA Tri-County Area Early Education Center, its staff said Thursday (Dec. 21, 2017), delivered not by Santa Claus but by employees of the Exelon Corp. Limerick Generating Station (at top and below).
An Exelon team drove in a truckload of wrapped and tagged gifts for the 165 children who attend the center. The YWCA provides names, ages, clothing sizes, and toy preferences for each child, and places that information on a gift tag. Employees choose a tag and purchase a gift for the child, then match tags to the gifts, and wrap and deliver them.
Every child in the center – those from 6 months to 6 years in preschool programs, and older children in its Before and After School Enrichment program – also received a gift for their parents or caregivers to take home and present during the holidays.
