Happy Monday and happy giving! Today is the 5th day of giving at Hire Up Staffing and over the last week we have shined light on some amazing charities. Here is yet another. McCormick Barstow partners with County of Fresno In Home Support Services to bring an abundance of Christmas cheer to the elderly, blind, and disabled of Fresno County. This is an annual project that McCormick Barstow has done for many years. The Fresno County social workers say that the gifts are well received by the recipients, some of whom would otherwise go without. Every year the entire team at McCormick Barstow gets involved and donates and this year would like to get YOU involved.
The McCormick Barstow elves are collecting baskets, food, toiletries, and other items. They will also accept cash donations and will do the shopping for you. The following items would be greatly appreciated, but anything you can think of that would be of use will be accepted: socks, slippers, sweatshirts, caps, toiletries, Kleenex, blanket throws, paper towels and non-perishable foods (e.g. canned goods and treats.) Please remember that nothing medicinal (vitamins, aspirin, etc.) can be distributed by the social workers. If you have any items you would like to donate, please call (559) 433-1300 Michelle Gagnon (ext.2122), Joy Mankini (ext. 2197) or Lisa Landen (ext. 2117).
The Hire Up teams made a special delivery of gifts to this McCormick Barstow today. Here is a photo of our team! We are asking everyone to donate something and if you are feeling generous, match us!
Thanks for helping this season!
