SOLitude Lake Management collects more than $3,550 in HOLiday Cheer program

Dec 30, 2013
SOLitude's service and inventory manager Becky Higgerson and her husband Chris have a great time wrapping the last of the HOliday Cheer toys.

Through its corporate volunteering and outreach program, The SOLution, SOLitude Lake Management donated more than $3,550 in games to illness-stricken children and gift cards, toys, games, accessories, clothes and other necessities to under resourced families throughout the East Coast.

In its second year, SOLitude's HOLiday Cheer program grew substantially. The program donated almost 60 percent more to the B-Strong Foundation and adopted two more families this year.

Again, SOLitude partnered with the B-Strong Foundation, www.b-strongfoundation.org, a nonprofit organization that provides meals, gift baskets, and encouragement to families with children who have been diagnosed with cancer. This year, SOLitude donated $870 in video games, which increased $10 for every new social media follower, to add to the donation B-Strong is making to the oncology floor at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. These games will be delivered to the children over the holiday season.

In addition to the donations to CHOP, SOLitude also adopted three families this year. These families, which included nine children in total, were nominated by local elementary schools and staff members. In addition to company funding from SOLitude, the three families SOLitude adopted received gifts from their wish lists that were purchased and donated by SOLitude employees.

“Our goal this year was to grow our HOLiday Cheer program both in total dollars donated and number of people we could help,” said Tracy King, SOLitude's director of marketing. “And our team exceeded the expectations for both. They got into the holiday spirit, included their own family members, and generously donated so many nice gifts and games to create much needed HOLiday Cheer this year.”

The SOLution is a company-wide program that encourages the company and all employees to strive to create a better world through volunteerism, community outreach, sustainability and environmental consciousness.  To participate or share a nonprofit's goals for consideration in The SOLution, contact King at tking@solitudelake.com.
