A Holiday of Giving
General Services, which in normal years hosts a big holiday party, is switching gears during the pandemic to emphasize giving.
“It was important to keep our holiday tradition going,” said Eric Robles, Director of Special Services and Club Member. “General Services wanted to continue with celebrating the season, including our annual giving back.”
The General Services Holiday Committee has incorporated some of the aspects of its luncheon drawings into donations and giving to others.
The Holiday Plan
General Services employees are invited to give to one of three recognized charities. When you do (make sure you use the link, provided), you’ll be entered to participate in the department’s gift giveaway.
