Professional Retail Services (PRS), Retail Security Services (RSS),
and Retail Mechanical Services (RMS) step out of the facility maintenance sector this holiday season to help local families fulfill holiday requests for the sixth year in a row.
Medford, New York: Professional Retail Services (PRS), Retail Security Services (RSS), and Retail Mechanical Services (RMS) today announced the donation of over 3k dollars’ worth of toys for the William Floyd School District for their Angel Tree list. This initiative was led by Kathleen Larmour, President of PRS, RSS, and RMS, with participation from Danielle Procida, Director of Finance of PRS, RSS, and PRS.
“A child should not miss out on unwrapping a gift during the holidays, and if we as a community can bring a bit of holiday magic to a child and a light heart to a struggling parent this holiday season, we should,”
says Kathleen Larmour, President of PRS, RSS, and RMS.
“In the words of Mother Theresa, ‘It’s not how much we give but how much LOVE we put into giving.’ ”
“I find joy in giving joy to others, and within the group, I feel we share that sentiment,”
says Danielle Procida, Director of Finance at PRS, RSS & RMS.
“The gifts from the holiday Angel Tree list were fulfilled, and we hope it brings a smile to a child’s face because, in that instance, we are fulfilled as parents, executives, and as humans.”
Angel Tree lists are requests for specific gifts from families whose financial hardship prevents them from purchasing holiday gifts for their children. The group of companies acquires a yearly Angel Tree list and purchases the requested gifts; this year, it was for the William Floyd School District. The purchases were picked up from the affiliated companies’ corporate offices on December 16, 2019, for distribution to the families on December 20, 2019, at the Family Service League in Shirley, New York. PRS, RSS & RMS have made this “Holiday Angel Tree” drive an annual event, making this year’s participation number six. This is one of many charitable drives that all three companies donate and volunteer throughout the year.
