Furniture building is not a core competency of ours, but nevertheless, we were proud of our handiwork to benefit a United Way family here in St. Louis this holiday season.
“Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store, maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more” – Grinch.
This holiday season, we decided to adopt a family designated as one of the “100 Neediest Cases” – which reflect families identified by the United Way who are in extreme circumstances and who need immediate help. We got to work.
Our family has three children and were in need of furniture and other personal items. So, in addition to shopping for hats, gloves and sheets, we got busy with some power tools and assembled five dressers and delivered two twin beds.
Similar to what happens to the Grinch, you can’t help but feel your heart grow three times bigger when you give your time and gifts to those less fortunate. And we are truly hopeful that our efforts will give them a bit of peace over the holiday season.
From our family to yours, may you and your family have a joyous holiday season.
