Baby, it’s cold outside! So to avoid all that, we’ve been very busy INSIDE working away for the final stretch of 2018. Calendars and holiday gifts are running rampant through our factory! It can’t be all work and no play, though. As you may have noticed, our JournalBooks team loves a good holiday celebration and Christmastime is no exception. Check out what we’ve been up to below!
Bells are ringin’ and angels are singin’ this holiday season! This year, we decided to participate in the Salvation Army Angel Tree Program, where we adopted Angels (kids) and Silver Bells (senior citizens) in need to give them a Merry Christmas. Our staff went all out with bicycles, toys, and warm clothes galore!
Speaking of helping those in need, our Second Harvest Food and Fundraiser went off without a hitch. Thanks again to our wonderful staff, we were able to provide several barrels of food, as well as over 500 pounds of food worth of donated money to our hungry neighbors.
We are so fortunate to be able to participate in these types of programs and help those in need. It is the reason for the season, after all.
As much as we’ve enjoyed helping others, we also like presents…and food. Who doesn’t, right? The holidays are the perfect time to celebrate with both and enjoy the fruits of our efforts all year! We began our in-house celebrations by gathering for a delicious traditional holiday lunch, catered by Carolina Gourmet Catering. There’s nothing like turkey and mashed potatoes to get you feeling festive! (Seriously though, their mashed potatoes could turn any ol’ Scrooge into Santa Clause himself.)
We couldn’t go to our festivities in just any old outfits, so our entire staff received these very cute and incredibly soft t-shirts from our lovely leaders. Will we ever take them off? Stay tuned…
On top of all this, some of our staff also participated in Secret Santa. As it turns out, we are very sneaky. There may have been some not-so-subtle questioning (and light internet stalking) trying to decide the perfect gift for our work pals, but all’s well that ends well!
We hope everyone enjoys the holidays and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
