The holiday season is a time for giving. For some, this season can bring an overwhelming pressure that stretches well beyond your means.
This year, our team at Stellar Blue decided to take part in the Adopt-A-Family program through the Salvation Army. This year, we wanted to make a difference in the holiday season for one special family.
The Adopt-A-Family program is a holiday program designed to assist families who are in crisis due to unemployment, medical issues, homelessness or other difficult circumstances. This program allows for families to enjoy one of the most wonderful times of year through the help of their respective sponsors.
On Monday, Dec. 12, Stellar Blue held it’s monthly production meeting where all of our crew gathered at our Neenah location to discuss active website projects and marketing client work. This month’s meeting was different than most. While certainly wanting to show our holiday spirit, the studio was decorated in holiday goodness from wall-to-wall with wrapping paper, lights, festive garb donned by the team and even a crackling yule log – that may or not have been an app casted to the 70” TV screen, but we digress.
Not only was the studio gushing with a festive aura, there was another feeling of cause and fulfillment amongst the group. Once the meeting concluded, there was no conversation concerning ‘goodbyes’ and ‘see-you-next-times’. After finishing up the final client topic, the group’s focus shifted towards our Adopt-A-Family initiative.
This year, Stellar Blue Technologies had the pleasure of being paired with a local, single parent household with two daughters, ages eleven and eight. To help make their holiday season as magical as it could be, Stellar Blue donated gifts such as, toys, clothing, blankets, books and other fun odds and ends. Our team came together in a joint effort to wrap all of their gifts and get them ready for delivery. For us, it was a chance for team building and being part of a holiday miracle.
We are so thankful for having the opportunity to not only be a part of such a wonderful initiative, but also this amazing community.
