‘Tis the Season

Spiced Eggnog, decorations, parties, presents and food…all things many of us think about during the holidays. But what about giving? Not gift giving, giving back. There are so many opportunities to get involved in the community, especially during the holidays. This season, we decided to give back in a big way. Recently, a colleague brought Senior Connections to our attention. Senior Connections is a Meals on Wheels agency that provides nutritious meals to seniors in the metro Atlanta area on a daily basis. What a GREAT cause! For many of the seniors in the program, the delivery of these meals may be the only opportunity they get to interact with another person that day. Also, unlike many of us, some of these seniors do not have a family to share a holiday meal with, so delivering these meals with a smile can really make their day. Monday through Saturday, the Senior Connections kitchen in Atlanta prepares, packages and delivers 3000+ meals to seniors around the area. Integress organized a company wide community outreach event over a 2-day period in which our fellow colleagues spent 3 hours helping out in the bustling Senior Connections kitchen. We got to take part in everything from food preparation and packaging, to the clean up afterwards. The amount of food that this place pumps out is incredible! On the menu our first day, country fried steak with confetti corn and mixed veggies. During all of the craziness, we were able to snap a few pictures…check them out!


I think a lot of people forget how good it feels to participate in something that has such a large impact in the community. How has your organization chosen to give back this year?
