By: Glady Reign

In the news: Volvo Cars of North America, LLC (VCNA) has recently presented oversized checks to three charities who participated in last month's Volvo S80 Holiday Gift Wrap program. The organizations awarded were the Shelter Our Sisters ($5,000), American Cancer Society ($9,127.42) for their work at the Garden State Plaza in New Jersey, and Merrick Kiwanis Foundation ($15,793) for its work at Roosevelt Field Mall in Long Island, New York.

Michelle Andryshak, Linda L. Nicholas, Renee Scharoff and Susan Helsinger accepted the donations in behalf of their respective charities at the VCNA regional office in Rockleigh, New Jersey. The Volvo S80 Holiday Gift Wrap Program is organized and sponsored by Volvo Cars at selected malls during the holiday season. This program provides shoppers the chance to have their gifts wrapped for free while they shopped.

All the proceeds of the said program were matched dollar for dollar by VCNA and were later on presented in the form of an oversized check to the three chosen charities recently which was witnessed by Volvo employees in attendance.

The Shelter Our Sisters, American Cancer Society, and the Merrick Kiwanis Foundation were among the six nonprofit organizations that were given donations by the VCNA across the nation. A total of $62,244.42 was distributed to agencies in California, New Jersey and New York. These agencies were chosen since they reflect the commitments reflected by Volvo's core values and sense of social responsibility.

The Shelter Our Sisters is a charitable institution that focuses on assisting women and children who are victims of domestic violence. This charitable institution provides victims with transitional housing, support and other services that focused on safety, empowerment and self-sufficiency. The American Cancer Society on the other hand is focused in eliminating cancer as a major health problem by means of research, education, advocacy and service. The Merrick Kiwanis Foundation has a vision of changing the world once child and one community at a time.
