November 15, 2017 (Lewisville, Texas) – Since 2012, First Choice Emergency Room, a freestanding emergency room network owned and operated by Adeptus Health, has teamed up with Toys for Tots for its annual holiday community toy drive. As part of its partnership, for the sixth year in a row, First Choice Emergency Room, will be collecting unwrapped toys for children ages 0-12 now through December 10 at all seven of its San Antonio facilities.
“Since our partnership with Toys for Tots began, thanks to the generosity of the local communities, we’ve collected more than 250,000 toys across all of our facilities,” said Joseph McDaniel, Facility Area Medical Director, First Choice Emergency Room, San Antonio. “This year we hope to bring joy to even more children during the holiday season who otherwise would be without.”
“Finding a present under the tree on Christmas morning is an experience every child deserves," said retired Marine Colonel Ted Silvester, vice president of the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. “First Choice Emergency Room’s community service goals certainly align with those the Marine Corps has promoted for nearly 70 years through our Toys for Tots Program and help us fulfill the Christmas holiday dreams of many of less fortunate children, who otherwise might have been forgotten."
First Choice Emergency Room facilities will be clearly marked as Toys for Tots drop sites with large holiday inflatables. Furthermore, the facilities are open 24/7, making it even more convenient for generous shoppers to drop off their unwrapped gifts for deserving children in the community.
