Chesterton's "Christmas in July" Helps Young Girl's Toy Drive


Groveland, MA — August 28, 2015

The A.W. Chesterton Company helped deliver boxes full of toys collected during their “Christmas in July” toy drive to Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in honor of a ten-year-old girl named Noelle.  Several months ago, after the hospital helped Noelle with her recovery, she was led to an almost empty “Prize Closet” to select a gift. Noelle became concerned for the many other sick children that would need prizes, so she decided to start a toy drive to give back to the hospital.

When Chesterton’s employee engagement team heard about Noelle’s story, they launched a campaign to help. Chesterton employees generously donated new toys to a number of wrapped boxes around the company's campus. The toys started piling high and when Noelle and her family visited Chesterton to see for themselves, they were thrilled at the success of the toy drive. After a celebration, Noelle expressed how thankful she was with Chesterton’s assistance and with her ability to now make an even bigger difference in the lives of sick children.

“We can’t thank you enough for all your support and your donations” said the team at Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center​ as they witnessed the large number of toys being delivered. They also assured Chesterton that “every  toy will go towards making a child feel better.”

The Chesterton employee toy drive success was featured on a recent edition of, August 18, 2015 5:48 PM EDT​.​  For more ways to help, visit Noelle’s Go Fund Me page and share her story with others. ​​
