Christmas is my favorite time of year and I truly love to give gifts and once again, for our fourth year, the DASI Solutions team participated in the Adopted Family program with Caring Kids, based in Wayne County, Michigan. Personally, this is a great experience and I thank Connie, our HR director for coordinating this each year. Without her help in putting this together, I would not know of a good way to help give a little something to those in need.
Each year, Connie brings the gifts donated by the DASI staff to a luncheon with the adopted families and we always bring one wrapped gift for the kids to open there. The rest are wrapped by the parents. Caring Kids is a fantastic group to work with and always find us truly deserving and grateful families to adopt.
This year, we adopted the Clark family. A single mom with two young boys under the age of 5, struggling to pay her bills after being laid off from her part time job, Ms. Clark was truly grateful for our donations. The entire team here at DASI stepped up and helped spread some joy to this family with their generous gift donations. Ms. Clark had tears in her eyes as she was desperately hoping to be fortunate enough to be adopted. She felt that it was a great blessing on her two boys who had a rather large wish list of both needs and wants – including winter gear, clothing and toys.
I’m so happy to be able to be part of this and bring some happiness to some much deserving children during the holidays. Hopefully we made a big impact on those boys and gave them something to smile about!
