CSX Intermodal ‘Plays’ a Big Part in Bringing Joy to Sick Kids
CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of the nation’s leading transportation companies, providing rail, intermodal and rail-to-truck trainload services. The company’s transportation network spans approximately 21,000 miles, with service to 23 eastern states and the District of Columbia, and connects to more than 70 ocean, river and lake ports.
Recently, this wonderful company generously donated the delivery of two truckloads of toys from GnuGames, Inc. in Illinois, to Kids Wish Network’s Distribution Center in Holiday, FL.
Kids Wish Network has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of brand new, top of the line toys to children and children’s care facilities all over the country. The charity primarily relies on donations of goods and services to continue its mission of bringing joy to children everywhere who desperately need it.
CSX came to Kids Wish Network’s rescue recently with the delivery of the toys, donated by GnuGames. The toys were picked up in Romeoville, IL and ferried down to Florida. All free of charge!
These wonderful goodies are included in Kids Wish Network’s unique Holiday of Hope Gift Bank program, an uplifting program that brings cheer to children admitted to the hospital for treatment. The donated toys are placed in pediatric care facilities all across America and are given to the children when they arrive for treatment. These precious treasures go a long way in easing the fears and anxieties these brave little warriors associate with medical care. Doctors and nurses all agree: Sometimes a smile can be the very best medicine!
So, KUDOS to CSX! Thanks so very much and we hope you know what an integral part you have played in the lives of some very courageous children!
