What does the holiday season mean to you? For most, it means spending time with family and friends, festive carols and songs, Christmas trees and lights, lighting the menorah, getting pictures taken with Santa Claus and of course, presents.
More important that all of those things is the spirit of giving. Now, more than any time of the year, we try to do some good for those less fortunate than ourselves. But it’s not always easy when you’re working for most of the holidays.
So why not bring that charitable spirit to work with you?
There are charity groups in every community that appreciate every donation they receive. And if you organize something through your company, the contributions can really add up. Canned food drives to help stock the shelves at local shelters and food banks. Programs like Toys for Tots that give deserving children fun holiday memories. And imagine the impact you could make if you and your coworkers sponsored a family that needed a helping hand this holiday season.
Of course, it’s not just giving money or donating gifts. Most charitable organizations operate through the grace of volunteers that are willing to spend a few hours a week helping out. In fact, a 2013 Gallup poll found that 65% of all Americans volunteered their time to a charity or religious organization in the past year. Consider the difference your company could make if just a few employees volunteered at the local shelter each week.
At Flex Tech, we believe in serving our fellow man and helping whenever we can. That’s why we support Toys for Tots, Shriner Hospitals for Children, the Dallas Police Department Santa Cops Toy Drive and churches and schools in Peru through Unashamed Missions.
This holiday season, we encourage you to do what you can to help those that might need help. Take care of your community and each other. But don’t stop just because the holidays come to an end. Live the spirit of giving all year long and truly make a difference in the world.
From all of us at Flex Tech, we want to wish you a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!
