Ingenious Med Partners with Children's Restoration Network for Holiday Charity

/PRNewswire/ -- This holiday season, Ingenious Med is partnering with Children's Restoration Network (CRN) to donate employees' time and treasure to roughly 2,000 Metro-Atlanta children living in group homes and shelters.

CRN kicked off November with a Thanksgiving food drive, an effort to stock 129 shelters with basic needs as well as holiday favorites. The organization looks to volunteers like Ingenious Med to host these food drives throughout Atlanta. Ingenious Med has sponsored a month-long drive within its office complex, giving 14 companies and nearly 450 individuals the opportunity to donate everything from canned foods to grocery gift cards.

Additionally, Ingenious Med will be actively participating in CRN's "Adopt-A-Shelter" holiday program. Not only has Ingenious Med pledged to make its adopted shelter's holidays more enjoyable with volunteered time and gifts, Ingenious Med has engaged to donate time and scholarships to the shelter year-round.

During CRN's "12 Days of Caring" event, volunteers like Ingenious Med will be invited to a gift wrapping party, where they will have the opportunity to meet other volunteers and distribute gifts to the children of all ages.

"Holidays are always tough on those less fortunate, especially homeless children and homeless mothers with children," said Cliff Kinsey, CEO of CRN. "We could not touch so many lives without the help of great corporate citizens like Ingenious Med. We are very grateful to be a part of their Philanthropy."

CRN has been servicing 18 Atlanta counties since 1993, providing shelter for nearly 3,800 needy children each year. Beyond providing the basic necessities of food and shelter, CRN strives to provide education opportunities and special programs and events to bring positive experiences for some of Atlanta's most deserving youth.

"We felt an immediate connection with CRN due to its emphasis on our Atlanta community and the ability it gave us to donate and volunteer all year and not just during the holiday season," said Ingenious Med CEO, Hart Williford. "The passionate staff and volunteers have had such wonderful successes with the shelters and homeless mothers and children they serve. We're enthused on an individual and corporate level about this partnership."
