For the second year, BRS employees volunteered with the Elyria-Swansea-Globeville Business Association at their annual holiday celebration for local families who are less fortunate. We organize this event with two local schools which determine the 260 neediest children.
The event starts off with carnival games and prizes to win for children of all ages.
Family pictures are also offered to all families, with plenty of Santa’s to go around!
When the children aren’t busy playing games or telling Santa what is on their wish lists, an abundance of arts and crafts activities are provided.
When the fun is almost over, all of the families are led into a room where each child is able to pick out a toy while the parents get a box of non-perishable food in a red radio-flyer wagon. The final stop is a perishable items station where they can get fruit, a ham, a chicken AND a turkey! They can even pick out treats for their pets.
It was great to see the excitement of the kids and the gratefulness of the parents, as well as spend some quality time together out of the office. It is truly a memorable experience and BRS is honored to participate in the event.
