A Team Holiday Effort with Operation Ward 57
As a gesture of goodwill and in lieu of holiday gifts, we partnered with Operation Ward 57, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting wounded service members and their loved ones. Each holiday season, Operation Ward 57 needs sponsors to assist veterans with Christmas or Hanukkah presents for their children, along with a grocery gift card for their holiday meals.
We had the pleasure of sponsoring six families located in or around our office locations in Northern & Southern California, Oregon and Washington. Each veteran was contacted to create personalized holiday wish lists for their children ranging in ages from 2 to 21. With lists in hand, our employees took the time and care to shop, wrap and deliver these gifts to the deserving families.
Our concerted efforts as a company team helped a total of 32 individuals (including 12 and 20 children) with holiday presents and food to celebrate this season of giving without any stress or worries. More importantly, our military veterans have given so much for the USA, and this is just one way to share our gratitude, kindness and resources with them.
We hope this simple act of generosity will inspire you to help families in your community too.. Following is more information on Operation Ward 57 if you would like to learn more. Also, we want you to know that when you do business with us, you are also involved in this spirit of giving. Together we are sharing our resources that ultimately benefit those who need help and hope.
