COTG Raises Over $2,500 For Bolingbrook Operation Christmas

Bolingbrook, Illinois – December 29, 2014 – In the true spirit of the Holidays, COTG - A Xerox Company, donated over $2,500 to Bolingbrook’s Operation Christmas.

Operation Christmas is a local program that serves over 500 families each year who are in need. Families are given food, clothing and toys for children to ensure they are able to have a happy Holiday season.

Since 2011, COTG has partnered with Bolingbrook’s Operation Christmas, donating over $15,000 to purchase toys to donate to families in need during the holiday season. COTG held a three week long fundraising event, “Three Weeks of COTG Christmas,” with all proceeds going to Operation Christmas.

“If it wasn’t for COTG and the Bolingbrook Firefighters, we wouldn’t have been able to do it,” said Lee Bush, Sr., Operation Christmas Co-Chairman. “Everyone really came through again this year; we really appreciate it.”

Every year, COTG executives and Bolingbrook Firefighters combine their funds and go shopping together to purchase new toys for the children of Bolingbrook.

“COTG donates thousands of dollars for the annual shopping trip, which is solely raised by the generosity of their employees,” said Bolingbrook Firefighter Alex Davis. “The Bolingbrook Firefighters Local 3005 hopes to continue this tradition for many more years to come.”

On Tuesday, December 16, over a dozen volunteers from COTG and the Bolingbrook Firefighters went shopping at Target, overflowing their carts with the newest toys for boys and girls. On Friday, December 20, COTG employees went shopping again with remaining funds with all toys donated to Operation Christmas.

“I participated in this great cause because Christmas is such an exciting and magical time for children,” said Gina Lyerla, COTG Chief Financial Officer. “I welcome the opportunity to volunteer in order to provide children a Christmas they may not have experienced otherwise.”

In addition to donating money, on Tuesday, December 2, COTG employees donated their time in assisting Operation Christmas with the setup of their donation site at the Bolingbrook Performance Arts Stage. Employees helped sort through thousands of food items and organized hundreds of brand new toys and gently used clothing.

“With the madness of the Holidays, it was great to give some time to volunteer two years in a row for Operation Christmas,” said Theresa Cuyugan, Specialized Billing Team “I was amazed at all the donations we were able to sort through; it shows that there is still good in the world.”
