MHRI’s Teamwork Helps to Provide Joy…
Blogger: Michelle Laubach, Manager, Office of the President
The theme of our 2016 Year End Celebrations is
TEAM Pride–Together Everyone Achieves More.
That MHRI teamwork was wonderfully
demonstrated by the abundance of toys you donated to Toys for Tots! This worthy
program is run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, who distributes toys
to children whose parents cannot afford to provide gifts themselves. Despite
the fact that the bins were scattered about in various locations, many of you managed
to track one down and help make a child happy this holiday season.
This year, MHRI surpassed the number of toys that were
donated last year, with over 100 toys! As you can see from the pictures,
we filled the Toys for Tots box at the Henderson Hall Marine Corps drop off
location. I only wish I had a picture of the smiles on the faces of the young
Marines on duty when I kept depositing more toys!
Your work together as a
team is something I am very proud to be part of - everyday I see and hear about the things we accomplish at MHRI, and this holiday season,
you’ve come together as a team to provide joy to little ones that you don’t
even know. What could be better!
