Today was the last day for overtime this year. We worked nearly 10 hours and I am feeling it. I just thought that I would post about some of the things my company does during the holiday though. Mostly it is the employees that get these things done, but without our jobs with the company, many wouldn't be able to be achieved.

1 over 30 bags of toys for the Toys for Tots program

2 900$ cash was raised

3 65 bikes were donated

4 And last but certainly not least.... 44 families were adopted as part of the Adopt a Family program that we participate in each year.

A hearty thanks goes out to all the autoworkers who donated their time and energy to this program. I really think that the things done this year will brighten up quite a few homes that are in need. Till next time BYE!!

It's awfully nice to be able to help out families in need, isn't it? My daughter and I try to help others in some way - especially at Christmas.

Happy Birthday.... I know I'm a bit late in the day, but think I may have squeeked in under the wire! Hope you had a great day :)

that is so wonderful !! when I was in high school I delivered gifts to the adopted families. It was the best feeling ever...I wish I could it everyday.

My daughter and I may be volunteering to serve Christmas Eve dinner at the LA mission this year for a couple of hours. I think its good for her to experience things like that (as long as its a safe environment of course.
