Each year, hundreds of families and seniors are referred to The Salvation Army for the Adopt-a-Family program. This key program is supported each holiday season to help those who may not otherwise receive any gifts. Through the program, sponsors are paired with families or senior citizens in need and are given a small wish list for each of the members assigned. The sponsor, who can be an individual or a group, then purchases and wraps the presents and delivers them to the Salvation Army’s Christmas distribution center.
OneCommand began supporting this inspiring community program in 2004. In the past eight years, despite the significant economic challenges facing even its own employees, the company has always had overwhelming participation and is proud to have been able to fulfill all the desires, and then some, of its adopted families.
“We are incredibly proud of the support we continue to receive from our employees year after year. This program is one that reminds us all about the true meaning of the holidays and knowing we are helping to make the season bright for families and seniors right here in our community is truly rewarding,” commented Lana Fender, Senior Executive Assistant & Program Coordinator at OneCommand.
Over the course of its long-time sponsorship, OneCommand and its employee donations have helped local families to receive gifts from televisions to furniture to toys to electronics — and everything in between. Since 2004, 26 families and 16 senior citizens have enjoyed a little brighter holiday, thanks to the efforts of OneCommand and its generous staff. This year included, more than $40,000 has been contributed in monetary and bought donations from the OneCommand team — illustrating there’s no amount too great to give back to those that need it.
“Every year I worry that the number of families or the requests we receive from them may be too great for our employees, but every year, I continue to be overwhelmed by the outpouring of compassion and care demonstrated by their response. When the thank you notes pour in during the first few weeks of the New Year, we are all reminded how worthwhile the effort and the expense really is,” reflected Fender on the company’s sponsorship and what it means to be able to help those less fortunate, year after year.
