Last week, we told you about Kenect collecting gifts for five families in need this holiday season, and now we can share that they have been delivered.
Each year, Kenect employees come together to help those in need. This year, we picked five families who are struggling due to financial and medical hardships.
After spending a couple weeks buying and gathering all the essential items, including toys for the kids, it was now time to spread the joy.
Kenect “Elves” donned their Christmas best and headed out to meet the families. Each group got a warm welcome from the families and were invited in to put presents under the tree.
All the families were extremely grateful, some of the kids even got to open one or two presents early!
In addition to all the gifts bought by Kenect employees, the company also provided some extra cash to help families with expenses. Each family also got a turkey, ham, and a pie for a holiday feast.
Kenect employees who could not make the deliveries themselves were looped into a video chat so they could watch all the festivities unfold.
A mom from one of the families shared her gratitude saying: “Your generosity has blown me away with your Christmas miracle for our family. Every time I look over and see the tree piled around with presents, I start to cry all over again. You have blessed our family so incredibly.”
We are so happy to be able to spread Christmas joy and be able to provide a little extra help to families struggling this season.
Until next year. Happy Holidays!
