MedExpress Cherry Hill collecting gifts for Crossroads Holiday Youth Gift Collection Program

The program is collecting gifts to distribute to those served in Crossroads Programs’ treatment and community programs.

Cherry Hill residents can give gifts to tweens and teens in need this holiday season through the Crossroads Holiday Youth Gift Collection Program.

In its second year, the program is collecting gifts to distribute to those served in Crossroads Programs’ treatment and community programs. This year, gifts are being collected at 16 MedExpress Urgent Care New Jersey locations, including the MedExpress on Route 38 in Cherry Hill.

“We are thrilled to partner with MedExpress Urgent Care for the second consecutive year to bring holiday joy to the youth we serve,” said Crossroads’ Programs CEO Michael Snyder. “Last year we collected close to 300 gifts at just seven MedExpress locations, so this year we are enthusiastic to expand the program and invite even more of the community to donate.”

Crossroads Program is especially in need of gifts for ages 10 to 18. Suggestions include ear buds, cologne, perfume, wallets, purses, book bags, body wash and lotions, winter gloves, winter hats, jewelry, footballs, basketballs, cookbooks, phone chargers, and gift cards to clothing stores. MedExpress also will collect personal care items such as toothbrushes, shampoo and deodorant

Gifts are being accepted through Saturday, Dec. 17 at the MedExpress check-in counter.
