Crossroads’ Programs is ensuring that hundreds of children and youth have a happy holiday this year, by partnering with seven MedExpress Urgent Care locations across South Jersey to collect and distribute holiday gifts to those served in Crossroads’ treatment and community programs.
The Cherry Hill MedExpress location will serve as one of the drop-off points for gifts suitable for infants through youth up to 18 years of age. The majority of children served by Crossroads range in age from 11 to 18 years old, so gifts for that age group are especially appreciated. MedExpress also will collect personal care items such as toothbrushes and deodorant, as well as cash or check donations, to be given to Crossroads’ Programs.
Gifts and donations will be accepted through Friday, Dec. 18. MedExpress will have specially marked donation bins and stockings. Donations also can be taken to the check-in counter.
