• Christmas Cheer

    By Super Kristi‘Twas the night before break, and all through the officeNot a staffer was working, or making a ruckus;The stockings were hung on the windows with care,In hopes that vacation soon would be there;The office was decorated with color and cheer;While visions of elves danced by the mirror;And the chief in her sweater, and tall socks too,Had just finished really riling up the crew,When out in the parking lot there arose such a clatter,We sprang from our chairs to see what was the matter.Away to the window we flew like a flash,Tore open the doors, and put on a sash.The reindeer antlers on the car in the lot,Gave a glimpse of Christmas to more than not,When what to our wondering eyes did appear,But Emily in an outfit, too many colors to wear,With a sweater so ugly it sure was to win,…

Megan, Emily, and Ellen knew they could volunteer anywhere during the holiday season but really wanted to volunteer with an organization that supports women. The ladies got to help set up each “shop”: one for moms to shop for their kids, and another for kids to shop for their moms. When the women and children came into the shop, our volunteer team helped show them around, pick out gifts, and then helped wrap them. Emily remembered “one of the ladies who came in and picked out a crockpot. She was so excited about it! She said that when she was able to get back on her feet, she was going to use it all the time and it would make her home warm and smell good.” Volunt…
