Henry Schein UK joins in the 25 years celebration of the Company’s “Holiday Cheer for Children” programme

Team Schein members embraced the spirit of generosity by hosting celebrations at three local primary schools in underserved areas and donating gifts for the children.

Henry Schein, and Team Schein Members (TSMs) from around the globe have celebrated 25 years of the Company’s “Holiday Cheer for Children” programme. Since 1999, the corporate flagship initiative has helped more than 20,000 underserved children and their families experience a cheerful holiday season, with TSMs donating clothing, toys, gift cards, and more.

“We are pleased to celebrate 25 years of fostering holiday joy for families all over the world,” said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. “‘Holiday Cheer for Children’ is not just an initiative, it is a reflection of Team Schein’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Thank you to all of Team Schein, who throughout the years, has helped keep the spirit of the programme alive. We look forward to many more years of Holiday Cheer to come.”


In the United Kingdom, Team Schein Members from the dental and medical teams contributed to sharing the festive spirit with kids from Gillingham, Ilkley, and Cardiff primary schools. A dedicated group of Team Schein volunteers hosted parties to spread festive cheer and provided a present for the kids.

“It was one of those emotional, magical events that reminded all staff why we do what we do. The pure joy and surprise on the children's faces, when Father Christmas arrived and delivered the presents that they had put on their Christmas wish lists, was a privilege to be a part of,” said a staff member from the Bradfields Academy in Chatham, one of the supported schools.

"I am immensely grateful to our Team Schein in the UK for their unwavering support and dedication, and their ongoing commitment to the Holiday Cheer programme. Their enthusiasm for bringing joy and putting a smile in the kids is truly inspirational,” said Vikki Goodall, Vice President and Managing Director UK & Ireland.

Holiday Cheer is an initiative of Henry Schein Cares, the company’s global corporate social responsibility programme. It stands on five pillars: empowering team Schein to reach their potential, advancing health equity and expanding access to care for underserved communities, accelerating environmental sustainability, strengthening, and diversifying our supply chain, and maintaining strong ethical governance. Health care activities supported by Henry Schein Cares focus on four main areas: (1) wellness, treatment, prevention, and education; (2) capacity building; (3) emergency preparedness and disaster response; and (4) health system strengthening.
