Lawrenceville, NJ, August 05, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Mrs. G TV & Appliances, the 3rd generation family owned showroom celebrating 77 years of business this year, continued its dedication to supporting the local community when CEO and President Debbie Schaeffer recently donated a refrigerator to the teen health organization HiTOPS in Princeton, NJ.
HiTOPS is an organization that provides peer-led educational instruction to enable local teens to live healthy and responsible lives. It is the only health center in New Jersey that is geared exclusively towards adolescents, ages 13-26. Ms. Schaeffer’s daughter Samantha, who is now in college, was on the HiTOPS’ Teen Council, a group of 20 high school seniors who are accepted to be peer educators in their school and community. The refrigerator donation was just one way to give back to an organization that has been a valued resource to teens for almost 25 years.
“I love supporting the local community, but this was extra personal to me since my daughter was involved in HiTOPS,” commented Debbie. “Elizabeth [the executive director] and her staff have such a wonderful organization for our teens to be connected with. I was more than happy to help on behalf of Mrs. G’s.”
In addition to in-school programs, HiTOPS has a clinic where youth ages 13-26 can come and receive health care services like health check-ups, advice and counseling, depression screening, contraceptives, pregnancy testing, sports physicals, and more. The staff likes to provide healthy snacks to the teens, and in order to do that they needed a refrigerator in working condition.
“Many of the staff bring their lunches to work and many of us eat lunch together each day; having a place to keep our lunches from spoiling is important to the 13 of us who are here every day,” commented Elizabeth Casparian, Executive Director of HiTOPS. “On the hot summer day that the fridge gave up, I sent an SOS email to Debbie and she immediately asked for measurements and needs. Four days later, our wonderful fridge arrived. Debbie says it is a gift to HiTOPS from both herself and Sammy!”
HiTOPS is located on 21 Wiggins St. in Princeton. For more information on how to get involved with HiTOPS, visit http://HiTOPS.org/ or call 609-683-5155.
