Once again, I’m extremely touched by the generosity the Prudential office and the entire staff showed in giving back to the community. A little background…
It had become a tradition in years past that the Prudential agents draw names for “Secret Santa” gifts around the office. $25 limits were set and gifts were exchanged at the Prudential Holiday Party.
In the last few months, our inter-office “Green Bean Team” brainstormed the concept of giving outward to the community this year, and the result was the sponsorship of several families through the United Way. Staff members were asked to contribute the same $25 that they would normally spend on gifts to co-workers and put it towards this project instead. Overall, we achieved 100% participation!
A small group of staffers, including Boyd Team members Amy Stonitsch and Stephanie Fairchild, set out shopping and purchased a LOAD of gifts. These will be used in making a very special Christmas for those less fortunate. Gifts were wrapped in our conference room and hand-delivered to those in need.
Thanks to the thoughtfulness and volunteering on the part of Prudential agents and assistants, this year’s Prudential Holiday Party will include a special new meaning. It will be an opportunity for all of us to reflect on the positive impact we’ve created in our community, apart from simply selling real estate.
THANK YOU PRUDENTIAL TEAM!!! For once again demonstrating what truly matters in life.
