SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Mercedes-Benz of Springfield hosted a toy drive to benefit Square One’s children and their families on Monday.

A celebration was held at 10:00 a.m. on Monday to celebrate the toy drive, according to a news release sent to 22News from Square One. If you were not able to make the toy drive, you can purchase a digital gift card and you can send it to Matt Deloria at mdeloria@startatsquareone.org and someone will purchase a toy for you.

Square One provides early learning services to over 500 infants, toddlers, and school-age children every day, and family support services to 1,500 families each year, as they work to overcome the challenges in their lives.

“The spirit of generosity has never been better or greater and we’re really overwhelmed and happy to provide the platform for people to spread that joy,” says Michelle Wirth,
Owner of Mercedes-Benz of Springfield.

“Part of what we are committed to doing is making sure that all children have the opportunity to be happy and to have that good solid foundation and this is just one more fun way that we are able to do that,” says Kristine Allard, Vice President of Development & Communication
for Square One.

The donations will now head back to the Square One offices where teachers and home visitors will be able to select items. From there, the gifts will be delivered to Square One families.
