Henry Schein’s ‘Holiday Cheer for Children’ helps spread joy around the world

Team Schein members donate clothing, gift cards, toys, and more


Henry Schein, Inc. and Team Schein members from around the world are celebrating the company’s 24th annual “Holiday Cheer for Children” program, a flagship corporate initiative that helps underserved children and their families enjoy a fun and festive holiday season.

Members from more than 15 Company locations participated in the program, helping to brighten the holidays for more than 1,700 individuals in the U.S., Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Spain. The philanthropic event takes different forms depending on the location, with members often collecting gifts and food for donation to local nonprofit organizations.

Team Schein also provides gift cards to philanthropic partners for families in need to help to alleviate some of the financial burden many individuals face during the holidays. The company collaborates with local social service agencies to identify families who would most benefit from participating in the program.

Seema Bhansali, vice president of Team Schein Member Experience & Inclusion at Henry Schein, said in a news release that the company’s culture is built on the belief that every person is as important as the next. This Team Schein culture is integral to our business and at the core of our initiatives, she said.

This year, members from Henry Schein’s global headquarters in Melville, New York, donated gift cards to 500 local children. Purchased through support from the Henry Schein Cares Foundation and contributions from TSMs, the gift cards will be used to buy holiday gifts.
