ROCHESTER, N.Y., January 22, 2014—Corrigan Moving Systems, a full-service relocation company dedicated to elevating the moving experience, announced today it partnered with Rochester, N.Y.-based Pirate Toy Fund to transport 17,000 gifts donated by community members in the Greater Rochester area to the nonprofit. Corrigan General Manager Marabeth Galardi made the announcement.
A nonprofit dedicated to donating toys year-round to local children in need, the Pirate Toy Fund’s annual December toy drive resulted in 17,000 children’s toys being donated by local community members and businesses. With these donated toys located at a temporary holding facility, Corrigan joined forces with Pirate Toy Fund for the 10th year, donating three trucks and drivers to collect the toys and bring them to the nonprofit’s headquarters in Rochester. Further helping with the cause, Corrigan employees, along with their families, volunteered their time on January 11 for a Toy Sort at Pirate Toy Fund, helping organizers unpack and stack the donated toys in their warehouse.
“In many ways, Corrigan and the Pirate Toy Fund organization are a lot alike in the sense that we are both dedicated to moving lives,” Galardi said. “As a family-owned company, it has been an absolute privilege to work with Pirate Toy Fund for the past 10 years, combining our skills and services to deliver a memorable experience for our local community.”
Founded in 1995, the Pirate Toy Fund has collected and distributed more than 240,000 toys to children in need. Recently, the organization expanded its “Toys on Patrol” program with the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, which stocks patrol cars with toys to comfort children involved in stressful situations.
Corrigan Moving Systems’ Rochester, N.Y., branch helped pack and sort more than 17,000 toys for the Pirate Toy Fund.
