TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Kids at the Appoquinimink Boys & Girls Club were surprised and overjoyed on December 16th when Amazon stopped by to give everyone toys, games and brand new Kindles for Christmas. “I know, I know, I got one, too!” exclaimed one of the young girls to her friends as several Amazon elves distributed the Kindle Fire Tablets to every child.

The world’s largest distributor or “everything” pulled up to the facility in a huge 53′ truck and unloaded $15,000 worth of gifts, including sports equipment, technology, toys and board games. “Because we have a nearby fulfillment center that’s filled with gifts for so many people across the country this season, we wanted to make sure kids in our community had a very Merry Christmas,” said Amazon Fulfillment General Manager Brian Jones.

The Appoquinimink give-away was  part of a nationwide holiday giving effort to help organizations in need near Amazon’s fulfillment centers.  “A remarkable effort by Amazon and so special for our kids,” said BGCDE President John Wellons. “We feel so fortunate that Amazon selected the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware for this incredible opportunity.”
