Lancaster, Pa. (December 13, 2018) – Each year, the children in YWCA Lancaster Child Care center celebrate the season during the winter solstice, complete with light refreshments, cookies and gifts for the children. This year, the twelve Standard Process Pennsylvania Distribution Center employees stepped up and purchased $1,500 in donated gifts for the children. They gave them to the kids by employees of Standard Process Inc. and YWCA Lancaster Child Care Staff during their celebration on Monday, December 17 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
“We are especially grateful to Standard Process Inc. for raising the money needed to get these special gifts for the children,” says Cathy Lerch, director, early learning development, YWCA Lancaster. “The fact that they asked for the ages and sizes of our kids will make the gifts tailored specifically for them, which will make it even better for them,” she adds.
