Crest Ink - Volume 33 - Number 04

Crest employees embraced the spirit of the holidays and volunteered their time to spread Christmas cheer and put a smile on people’s faces. Christmas cards were filled out, gifts were bought and bells were rung by a number of Crest employees. As in the past, volunteers shopped and wrapped gifts for local residents at Jack Mabley, Village of Progress, Kreider Services, Franklin Grove Nursing Home and the Oregon Nursing Home who no longer have family close by to celebrate the holidays with. Volun - teers were given wish lists for these individuals and were then able to find the perfect gift to hopefully brighten someone’s day! We were able to buy for 90 residents this year!

In addition to shopping for these places, volunteers filled out 550 Christmas cards to send to the residents as well. Sometimes there’s nothing better than receiving a good “old fashioned” Christmas card! Some volunteers even got their own families involved and had them fill out and decorate the cards before being sent off to the recipients. Crest also partnered with the Lee County Salvation Army again and 42 employees volunteered to ring the bell for a total of 28 hours in front of Ace Hardware in Dixon. This is so appreciated by the local community and all money raised goes to such an amazing cause. We are so appreciative to everyone who volunteered this year and made the holidays a little brighter for so many. It wouldn’t be possible without you!
