For more than 18,000 underprivileged children across Colorado, Santa delivered toys and gifts through Kenzi’s Causes and its 15th Annual Holiday Toy Shop. Auto Glass Now’s Lakewood, CO, location joined the local Denver celebration in December to serve hundreds of local children with toys and holiday cheer.
Kenzi’s Causes is a nonprofit organization that supports underprivileged children and their families throughout the State of Colorado by providing them with the tools and resources needed to truly thrive and live an overall more well-rounded life. The Holiday Toy Shop provides these children with a new toy for Christmas. Because of Auto Glass Now’s support, 18,000 kids who may not have had a new toy for Christmas had a present under the tree.
Auto Glass Now technician Junior Gutierrez served as a holiday elf, lending his skills to the bike build that happened the day prior. About 135 kids received brand new bikes at the Holiday Toy Shop event in Denver, and Team Auto Glass Now put together 10 of them for very deserving kids.
“For the holiday season, and throughout the year, we want to make a difference in the community where we live and work,” said Erik Carruth, director of commercial sales at Auto Glass Now. “We’re proud to lend our time and resources to help build bikes, collect toys and volunteer at the Holiday Toy Shop to distribute toys to these deserving kids. It’s heartwarming and inspiring to see the joy in their eyes when they receive their presents. We hope to continue serving our community through programs like this.”
