FORT MYERS, Fla. (November 5, 2015) – Allyn International Services, Inc. (Allyn) employees supported Children’s Advocacy Center of Southwest Florida for the past three quarters by hosting several fundraisers, donating money, and purchasing hygiene items those children in need. With the funds raised, Allyn employees were able to hand craft emergency hygiene kits for 500 children facing crisis situations within the Southwest Florida region.

Allyn has a history of giving back to the local community of Southwest Florida and has integrated contribution as one of its’ eight corporate values. Allyn employees worked closely with the United Way during these contribution efforts. There were many employees involved in hand crafting these emergency kits with Reed Struxness, Logistics Specialist at Allyn, leading the charge. “It’s been a rewarding experience for everyone involved.  Contribution is one of Allyn’s core values and our team and our entire staff have done an amazing job on meeting the goals of this project to completion.  All the credit goes to them – it’s been their ideas, their work and their contributions.   From the first penny that was given to the final kit that was stuffed and tied, we’ve been motivated and have enjoyed knowing that what we’re doing will help kids in our community who need it.”

The proceeds from these events, combined with Allyn's matching funds, have generated more than $150,000 distributed to charitable organizations since 1992.
