For the 2018 Holiday season Triversity Construction and TriVeristy Craft Force participated in the Adopt-A-Family program through St. Vincent de Paul’s “Christams Together Program”. Throughout the year, St. Vincent de Paul’s staff and volunteers serve those in our communities that cannot afford the basic necessities. During the holidays they rely on the help via individual donations and companies like ours to support nearly 350 Tristate families.
The 2018 Holiday season marks the third year we’ve participated in the program. With Jen Fischer, Corporate Staff Accountant, leading the initiative we adopted a family of five. Our family consisted of a single mother and her four children (ages 1, 5, 7, and 8). The staff at Adopt-A-Family gave us a list of items each family member wanted or needed. We sent the list via email to the entire staff at Triversity and TCF and the response was overwhelming. By December 6 (wrapping day) we were able to donate 75 gifts for the family. This included two bikes, a scooter, clothing, diapers, cooking and kitchen ware, comforter sets for each child, coats, hats, and gloves for each child and so much more.
Our 2018 Adopt-A-Family initiative was such a large success for our company that we are taking on the task to adopt two families for the 2019 Holiday season.
