     It’s not Santa’s sleigh, but to kids hoping for a Christmas present, a van full of donated toys looks pretty close!

     Arizona’s largest orthopedic and neurology practice, The CORE Institute, delivered several vans full of over 1,500 toys to the Phoenix Salvation Army on Dec. 16. The organization will distribute the toys to benefit needy local children this Christmas.

     “The Salvation Army does an amazing job making Christmas a little brighter for kids and families in need,” said Allison Vasconcellos, senior vice president of marketing, branding and sales for The CORE Institute. “Our staff and physicians enjoy participating in the toy collection every year and we hope that anyone who has yet to make a donation this holiday to drop it off in any of the Salvation Army collection bins across the Valley.”

     Vasconcellos added, “The CORE Institute is committed to being a positive force in our community, in both the excellence in patient care we provide and in giving back. It is a small thing we can do to give back and make a child’s holiday special here in the Valley of the Sun.”
