ALBANY A local lender is looking to the community for suggestions on how to give back this holiday season.
Prime Commercial Lending in Albany will be giving away $5,000 worth of Toys R Us gift cards this year, and wants to find 10 needy families who would benefit most from a $500 gift card.
“I hope this money will help make the holidays a little brighter for families in our area who need it the most,” said Kris Roglieri, President and Founder of Prime Commercial Lending in a statement. “Many of our friends and neighbors go through financial ups and downs, and worry about being able to buy gifts for their kids. This is our way of making sure these kids can wake up Christmas morning with surprises under the tree.”
Anyone wishing to nominate a family is asked to send a brief explanation to firstname.lastname@example.org. Any family or single parent who has encountered a recent hardship that has children is eligible and will be considered.
The deadline for nominations is Wednesday, Dec. 5. The families selected will receive their gifts on Friday, Dec. 7.
