Believe it or not we only have two hands a piece, but our agency seems to find ways to do more and more because we want to. We are not content with merely existing within our community; we strive to be a part of it. To us this means lending a helping hand outside of every day business activities and donating our time and resources to a good cause, especially to those who are close to home.
As an agency we have a strong personality and to us it is important to show that off sometimes. We have a lot of employees who are eager to do more and we channel that into a full calendar of community initiatives. These initiatives give us a chance to make a meaningful social impact within the community and we love a good group activity.
This year we decided to tackle the season of giving head-on. As an agency, we planned a couple holiday-themed initiatives, which we are super proud of. In October, we initiated a canned food drive to help feed the hungry in our community and enlisted the help of our business park to further our efforts. We were delighted that we were able to make a donation of 143 pounds of food to the Anne Arundel County Food Bank the week prior to Thanksgiving. This food was then provided at no cost to low-income families, non-profits and other community organizations in our area. Most recently we decided to get a bit crafty by making holiday cards for the “Holiday Mail for Heroes” initiative supported by the American Red Cross and Pitney Bows. Although some of us are craftier than others, we were able to construct some real one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Our homemade cards will be distributed to servicemen and women at military installations, veterans hospitals and in other locations. Aside from offering us a lot of laughs, these projects allowed us to spread some holiday cheer this season, and for that we are thankful.
