Every year, my employer participates in a toy (and other goods) drive for the holidays. Usually it is toys and books that are offered, but often it is also things like canned food and blankets.
I believe in this type of activity for two main reasons: 1) it offers an opportunity for people to collaborate with others they don’t usually collaborate with, and 2) it gives us a chance to “feel good.” I believe these two things strongly influence our work environment and collaborative spirit at Klein Buendel.
I gave a new Jenga set. I often feel there are limited toys for teens and felt Jenga may be something that is non-tech or clothing a teen may enjoy.
I gave because I wanted to take part in the cheer, and yes, it made me feel good.
