Shopping for a cause, for our communities in need.
For many in our community, the holidays can be an especially stressful time of year. Parents that struggle to feed and clothe their families are further burdened with finding a way to afford gifts during the holidays.
Our Executive Leadership Group (ELG) was happy to help out this season, joining forces to shop for local families in need. ELG members took to the Providence Place Mall shopping for hundreds of gifts in support of the Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive. Sponsored by our local community partner, Children’s Friend, the drive collects donated gifts for more than 1,000 families in need during the holidays.
Divided into 15 teams, ELG members searched for the perfect gifts for a specific family. They scoured the three-floor mall for more than an hour, purchasing toys, clothing, gift cards, and other holiday-season necessities. More than 100 shopping bags were filled and ELG members left with a sense of accomplishment, knowing they are directly helping families in their community.
The Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive began more than 15 years ago. Last year, the drive included a record number of recipient families: 1,456. This year’s goal is to serve 1,500 families from the gift drive, 15 of which our ELG have supported.
