We Do It Every Year
It’s that time again – time to celebrate, get together, and exchange gifts. For us at Home One Services, holidays are also time to give back to community and those in need.
Our whole team gets a lot of satisfaction from providing superior services and also from supporting the community, and for the past 11 years we have proudly been a Toys for Tots drop off location at Christmas.
The Toys for Tots box sits in our office again this year. Starting on October 24, and all the way until December 8, we continuously accept toy donations. We were touched by the idea and impressed with the operation, and felt very fulfilled knowing that the children would have presents to open on Christmas!
When it comes to helping little kids and the less fortunate, our team’s dedication shines through – our employees decided to also volunteer to help distribute the toys at the warehouse. This was the 2nd year in a row, and we are certain that there are many more to come.
Within the Toys for Tots program, people come into our office to drop off their toys, books and other gifts they are donating; and then closer to Christmas, a truck comes by to pick up the gifts and transport them to a warehouse, where they get sorted out according to different age groups and by boys and girl’s toys.
We then humbly help with escorting the parents who come to the warehouse to choose the gifts for their children. A station is set up where they can have their gifts wrapped, and we also assist the parents with carrying the gifts to their vehicle in the parking lot.
Toys for Tots is a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve. Since 1947, it’s been helping to collect and distribute toys for children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
At Home One Services, we admired the Toys for Tots program and wanted to also make a difference in someone else’s life – so ever since we opened our business, we’ve been a Toys for Tots drop off location!
For the Home One Services team, helping the community and making sure that less fortunate children receive holiday gifts is extremely rewarding. When our own employees come together to help others out like this – we all feel the true Holiday Spirit!
We are also very grateful to live and work in the community that is based on traditional values, where we can provide our contractor services and volunteer for such a gratifying cause. We are sure we’ll run into some of you at the charitable events such as Toys for Tots!
