“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” – Winston Churchill
Tis’ the season for giving and in the spirit of giving the employees here at Welaptega rallied together and adopted a family through the Caring & Sharing Angel Tree Food Bank Adopt-A-Family program. The Angle Tree Program began in 1993 and supplies food boxes to approximately 200 families over the Christmas holidays. They also supply gifts to approximately 250 children and feed an additional 300 families through their onsite foodbank in Enfield, NS.
Over the past few weeks, we collected all of the supplies a family of four would need during the holiday season and added in a little a lot extra. Working like little elves, we turned the front end of our office into a production line of non-perishables, milk products, fruits and vegetables, poultry and other meats, chips, snacks and sweets, movie passes, etc., and packed everything neatly into numbered boxes with hope that we were giving our adopted family a Christmas to remember. Once everything was packed and ready to go, the sense of accomplishment amongst the team was undeniable. Plans are already being made for next year and we are hopeful that we will get the opportunity to support two families.
