(Longwood, FL December 25, 2012) Shoppers’ Critique International, one of America’s largest and oldest customer intelligence agencies once again rallied its employees to deliver a very Merry Christmas to one of Seminole County’s needy families through Kids House of Seminole, Inc. Hundreds of dollars worth of new clothing and toys were donated by generous SCI employees for the fifth consecutive year.
“One of our former account supervisors, Sandy Tenore, had a daughter who is a caseworker with Kids House,” explained Shoppers’ Critique General Manager Sharon Rice. “When she shared information with us and we read the heart-breaking stories about the families that Kids House reaches out to, we felt like we had to do something to get involved.”
For more than a decade, Kids House has been a safe and caring place where child victims of abuse can find compassionate care and healing. In the last fiscal year, Kids House helped heal 2,256 children. Their mission is to prevent child abuse and to aid child abuse victims and families by providing coordinated services in a safe, child-friendly environment, from report and investigation, through treatment and resolution.
Each year Kids House hosts a large holiday party for nearly 300 children and their families. Each child receives a special gift from their wish list and is invited to participate in crafts, games, face painting and have their picture taken with Santa Claus. Additionally, about 30 special families are selected each year and are provided with a complete holiday including decorations and gifts. SCI has sponsored one of these families each of the last five years.
“They (Kids House) supply us with a specific list that each of the kids wished for in our adopted family. This year we have a little boy and little girl, and we will be donating toys, games, books and clothes that they asked for,” continued Rice.
Kids House is located in Sanford, Florida, the county seat of Seminole County, which is also home to Shoppers’ Critique International.
