I love this time of year. Getting together with friends and loved ones, finding the perfect gifts for everyone on your list and what do I enjoy the most? Giving back. Every year at The Stationery Studio we host a coat drive to help those in need. This year, we were presented an opportunity to help some students who didn’t have any coats at all. For anyone who’s experienced winter in Chicago, you know that you need a winter coat. We asked everyone at our office to help out and purchase new coats for these kids. We were thrilled that so many employees brought in new (and gently used) coats for our coat drive.
The coats were delivered to the school the week of Thanksgiving and the kids were thrilled to get new coats for the upcoming winter. We donated almost 200 coats!
You can see the “sea” of coats behind a few of our employees who posed with them before they were delivered. I love being a part of a company that not only values their employees but cares about our community as well. Let me know how you give back during the holidays. I love hearing stories of how others are inspired to help their communities.
