Paying It Forward: Helping Thanksgiving Be More Thankful
One of the things I like about my day job is the community focus. It's NOT just about making surgical devices, but also about making a positive impact on the community and the world. United Way is heavily promoted, we may only have about 1200 employees, but we're consistently top 5 in Cincinnati area corporate giving, and always #1 in community projects performed. Blood drives are important too, with frequent on-site opportunities.
And of course this time of year, the focus gets really local, with smaller departmental projects to adopt a family or more for the Holidays, making sure that for Thanksgiving that food on the table won't be a concern, and that at Christmas there WILL be presents for everyone in the family.
This week, our group connected with a local charity to gather food for Thanksgiving. We could bring non-perishable food in, or contribute funds for a shopping trip. In this case, we chipped in cash for our departmental admin Sandy to use for shopping. Hopefully Andrew J. and some of his friends will help make this Thanksgiving a special holiday for people that need the help.
Despite the negative news we hear, our feeling is our country is too blessed for anyone to need to be truly hungry. Please help out where you can, how you can. Whether your time, your contributions, or both, you CAN make a difference in someone's life.
A quote from our friend in North Carolina:
"I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition. I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can. No more, no less." Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®
