This year marks 15 years that Valley Design has been making Christmas donations to Fillmore County and the Fillmore County Food Shelf under our employee Sharing Tree program. The Sharing Tree assists our local families in need with Christmas gifts, food, and donations. Valley Design is blessed to have the opportunity to give back to our great community!
This year, we kicked off the Sharing Tree with our Pumpkin Carving Contest. Employees donated cans for entry and started the early sign-up for Christmas in Fillmore County. This year’s winner was Casey Bates, our paint line supervisor! He won a $25 gift card, which he donated back into the Sharing Tree.
Fast forward to December 7th, Valley Design delivered the goods collected through our employee Sharing Tree to the Christmas in Fillmore County. We had the opportunity to sponsor 19 different children, providing gifts and donations for Christmas in Fillmore County. We also were able to give 144 gift cards worth $25.00 each. These gift cards were presented to teenagers, who often are too old to enjoy the toy donations many tend to give. For the younger children, we provided various toys and books. In addition to the sponsorship and cash donations, we were able to donate multiple boxes of books, toys, warm clothes, and more.
The Holiday giving didn’t stop there! Valley Design employees joyfully stocked the Fillmore County Food Shelf with over 2.5 tons of food. To go along with the tons of food, we were happy to present the Fillmore County Food Shelf with a check worth $5,130.66. They expressed sincere gratitude for everything our Valley Design employees do for them throughout the year.
In total, Valley Design employees gave over $15,000 to the Fillmore County community this holiday season!
As 2021 comes to a close, we want to let our employees know how much their efforts mean to Valley Design and the community. We wish you a healthy holiday season and a happy New Year!
