Donation helps underprivileged kids get the most out of holiday season
MIDDLETON, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A special delivery of more than 15,000 batteries will help power
happiness this holiday season. As part of TODAY’s 22nd annual
Toy Drive, the Rayovac® Battery division of Spectrum Brands
will donate AA and AAA batteries to three different organizations to
help spread holiday cheer to thousands of children in need throughout
the United States.
According to TODAY, every 29 seconds, a child in the United States is
born into poverty. With limited access to food, medical care and basic
human services, it’s unlikely these children can expect extras, such as
presents like toys or games, this holiday season without the assistance
of toy drives throughout the country.
“We realized we have the power, quite literally, to help ensure these
kids are able to make the most out of the toys they receive through
TODAY’s Toy Drive,” says Dann Provolo, Vice President of Marketing,
North America Batteries & Appliances. “Given that, offering what we have
is a no-brainer. It may not be the most glamorous-sounding of gifts –
but it can help make someone’s holidays a little bit brighter.”
