We are incredibly proud of the work that our employees are doing to make sure our community is taken care of this holiday season. Believing it’s always better to give than to receive, we took on “Toys for Joy” for the third year in a row. And, we’re making a difference…
This community program helps families in need provide gifts to children in Bond County, where Enertech Global’s corporate office is located. The focus of the program is to provide one main gift of approximately $25 in value for each child. In the past, socks, underwear, reading books, coloring books and crayons have been provided as well as various other toys.
To participate, employees were encouraged to take an angel from the tree set up in our reception area and purchase an item needed for that child. Last year, Toys for Joy provided gifts to 451 Bond County children from 188 area families, and they’re looking to provide many gifts again this year with help from the community.
Debbie Orr, HR Manager for Enertech Global, who helped organize this program for employees commented, “Personally, I appreciate that Enertech recognizes the importance of giving back to the Greenville community. In these difficult economic times, there are local families who are struggling. Enertech employees have been blessed this year, and I believe we have a responsibility to help those in need. It personifies what the Christmas season is all about. We give because it is the right thing to do.”
Many of the employees share Debbie’s perspective on giving because every angel on our tree was taken care of by an employee. Teri Allen, a marketing team member, was thrilled to participate this year stating, “It is important to me to participate in a program like this because I know what it is like to be blessed, and it brings joy to me to know that a child who hasn't been given quite so much in this life as others is hopefully benefitting from the goodwill of others this Christmas Season. Enertech has shared their blessings with so many over the years, and it's great to be part of a family company where serving others before self is a huge priority!”
Thanks to all Enertech Global team members for sharing their generosity and helping make this holiday season a little brighter for kids in our community.
