‘Tis the season of giving! 🌲
This year instead of having an annual White Elephant gift exchange, our Aquatics Division decided to redirect their gift giving agenda. They partnered with PB&J Family Services to sponsor two families in need of Christmas gifts and other household items this holiday season. More than a dozen Aquatics managers came together and purchased sweaters, blankets, bedding, comforters, a laundry basket, several gift cards, jackets, winter coats, socks, diapers, bath towels, winter hats, bedroom decorations, arts and crafts sets, LOL Dolls, Legos, playdough, and building blocks. The total contribution was over one thousand dollars!
