In our favorite way to spread holiday cheer, our amazing agents and staff donated gifts and complete Christmas dinners to nine local families. Each year, we receive a list of gifts and toys that these families would like or need for Christmas. In each family, at least one person is disabled or sick, so these gifts and food are incredibly meaningful and much needed. The gifts range from learning games and toys for children, to socks and other daily necessities that most of us take for granted. For the nine families, there were more than 70 gifts donated by the incredible people at our company. After the toys were brought into the office, several of the agents and staff took an afternoon to joyfully wrap these presents.
In addition to the gifts, complete Christmas dinners were also donated for these families. Railey Realty purchased the hams, and our agents and staff purchased the remainder of the items needed. This is the same organization we use to donate meals for Thanksgiving, so we're very happy to help provide these meals again for Christmas. All of the food and gifts were picked up this morning and are headed off to these families. This organization helps more than 90 people in Garrett County alone, and we're incredibly grateful to have such caring and passionate people working in our office. From coordinating the presents, to wrapping, to pick up, each task is done with gratitude and smiles, and it's one of our favorite holiday traditions in our office.
The holiday spirit that we all know and love is evident in every present wrapped and food packed, and we hope that all of those deserving families have a very merry Christmas.
