During the holiday season, we pause to reflect as we enter a new year and decade. We are reminded of how fortunate we are on both a business and personal level. We are enriched in many ways by our relationship with our clients and business associates.
In acknowledgement of our gratitude and in appreciateion of these relationships, we continue this year with the tradition of making charitable contributions during the holiday season in honor of our valued clients and business associates.
In recognition that, again this year, many have suffered from wildfires, hurricanes, tornados and floods, we have made a contribution to Week of Compassion, an organization that seeks to relieve suffering through disaster response and humanitarian aid all over the world.
Earlier this year, our partners and their husbands went on a mission trip to Costa Rica to build two homes for families in need of secure shelter. To continue our efforts to help those in need in other parts of the world, this holiday season we have purchased two goats, a sheep and a pig through Heifer Project International. The Heifer website states that animal donations can provide families a hand up, increasing access to medicine, school, food and a sustainable livelihood.
We also recognize how fortunate we are to have plenty of food and a warm place to come home to each night. For that reason, we have also made donations on a local level to DuPage Habitat for Humanity and the Disciples Food Pantry, a small local food pantry that is currently providing food to over 1,000 people each month. Doris volunteers at the food pantry and both Doris’ and Christine’s husbands volunteer for the local Habitat for Humanity chapter.
It is our hope that our donations bring honor to our clients and business partners as well as hope to the persons who receive assistance through these organizations.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday with family and friends and a happy and prosperous 2020!
