Cabot Toy Drive Benefits Hundreds of Families In Northeast PA

Despite a down year for the natural gas industry here in Northeast Pennsylvania, Cabot’s annual Toy Drive delivered an estimated $6000 in toys, gift cards, and much-needed funding for food and fuel assistance this holiday season for families in Wyoming and Susquehanna Counties. The toys and funds were delivered to Susquehanna County Interfaith and Wyoming County Interfaith Friends.

Cabot coordinated the Toy Drive with the Interfaith agencies in both counties to ensure the distribution of gifts and funds to the greatest number of families and individuals in need. It is projected Cabot’s Toy Drive will help an estimated 600 plus families in some way this year!

For those of you curious, the most requested toys and gifts this year were Star Wars, Legos, and anything from the animated film Frozen. Other popular items included Barbie and Barbie accessories, action figures from Marvel’s Avengers films, and RC Cars.

A very big THANK YOU goes out to everyone assisted with the Toy Drive this year. Cabot would like to especially thank the following companies for their generous assistance: GasSearch Drilling Services, Leatherstocking Gas Company, Cody Energy, Baker Corp, Kenworth of Pennsylvania, Stoney Mt., Cleveland Brothers, Sugar Hollow Water Services and many more.

Below is a collection of pictures from the toy deliveries. Santa and his elf made a special appearance to help with the deliveries.
