This short week before Christmas often involves a lot of running – running to the mall, running to the store, running off cookie weight, running, running, running.
And as my head swims with about a million things that need to be done before my own party on Friday night (cookies, presents, cleaning – oh my!), I wanted to take a moment to brag about the generosity of my wonderful coworkers in Philadelphia.
Recently, we had the opportunity to participate in two separate drives organized by our David Michael Social Committee. Aside from the fun stuff (barbecues, snack days, and chili cook-offs), our social committee is also responsible for coordinating efforts in our local community.
First, our Philadelphia office, labs and plant collected 637 pounds for Philabundance, a Philadelphia-based food bank that distributes throughout the Delaware Valley. And last week, we played Santa Claus for two local families sponsored through St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children. We think there’s going to be some very happy kiddies on Christmas morning!
Each year we strive to go above and beyond the efforts of the year before – which may seem impossible. But each year, we are amazed by the generosity of our coworkers, who continue to raise the bar.
So, that’s my shout out – great job to all of our folks in Philly, especially the Social Committee.
Happy Holidays – gotta run!
